ON THURSDAY, April 2, a team of professionals from the Jewish Federation of Greater Metro-West NJ assembled packages of Passover food at the Alex Aidekman Family Jewish Community Campus in Whippany and 18 volunteers delivered them. Fifty-five bags were dropped off to clients of Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ, 25 to clients of JCC of Central NJ, and 40 to clients of JCC MetroWest Meals on Wheels.

“What an honor it was to help out in our small way,” said volunteer David Sanders. “We delivered four Passover packages to the seniors in our community. They were so appreciative. I know it meant the world to them knowing that federation takes such good care of them, particularly in such dire times.”

On Monday,  April 6, volunteers also delivered cases of Passover food to healthcare workers at Morristown Memorial, Overlook, and St. Barnabas hospitals.
