Thanksgiving Baskets: Family Day at the JCC

Over the past few years, the Dreamers and their families have volunteered with the Thanksgiving Basket Fund at Dave & Mary Alper Jewish Community Center (JCC). Located in the heart of Kendell, JCC provides many opportunities for the Jewish community and South-Dade residents to enjoy recreational, educational, cultural, and social activities.

On November 20, 2011 a total of 31 Dreamers and their families took a trip to the JCC to participate in the Thanksgiving Basket Fund. For two hours, Dreamers made Thanksgiving greeting cards (for their families and other families in need) and over 100 Thanksgiving baskets!!! A special thank you to Mrs. Sheila Stieglitz, who does a great job of coordinating the Thanksgiving Basket Fund every year and to the mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and brothers who decided to come and support their Dreamer!!

Choosing the right crayons is a very serious job :) Malik
