Stop & Shop…and support a great cause Jewish Family Service of Tidewater’s Helping Hearts project

September 16, 2015

What’s Happening

Sunday, Oct. 11, 1–5 pm, Sandler Family Campus

More than 25 direct sales and community vendors and crafters will participated in Jewish Family Service of Tidewater’s 2nd Annual Holiday Stop & Shop at the Sandler Family Campus.

Among those displaying their wares will be Avon, In a Pikle, Pampered Chef, Premier Designs jewelry, Mary & Martha, Pink Zebra, 31 Gifts, Tastefully Simple, and Tupperware. Proceeds from vendor fees and door prize tickets will benefit JFS’ Helping Hearts project.

Now in its 11th year, the Helping Hearts project provides indigent adults with gifts for the holidays. It’s hard to imagine spending a holiday alone, but sadly, many adults in Tidewater do just that.

Dorothy Salomonsky, director of JFS’ Personal Affairs Management program, says, “Many of the recipients live off of $30 per month, and have little or no family or friends to see during the holiday months. This year, we hope to provide 1,000 adults with these gifts to let them know they are not alone and to spread a little cheer.” A number of the individuals served by this project are part of the JFS Personal Affairs Management (PAM) program for incapacitated adults.

The event is free and open to the public. For a complete list of vendors and more details, visit www.jfshamptonroads.org/miscellaneous-events.
