TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – This holiday season, the UJA-Federation of New York’s Northern Westchester and Rivertowns hosted a charity event for children as part of their Gift of Hanukkah program.

Organizers tie-dyed shirts and donated used clothing to the needy.

The Gift of Hanukkah program allows the organization’s communities in Westchester to host parties at a number of its beneficiary agencies.

“You may not realize this, but UJA supports nearly 100 health, human-service, educational, and community agencies” said Elissa Strauss, of Irvington, during the gathering at the JCC in Tarrytown.

The clothing and T-shirts were donated toward the Kids’ Kloset program of the Westchester Jewish Community Services, which distributes the items to vulnerable children in Westchester. WJCS is also supported by UJA-Federation.
