Donations sought for Holiday Wish List program

Tampa Jewish Family Services annual Holiday Wish List program hopes to serve more than 350 families during the upcoming holiday season.

One-thousand Mitzvah Pillows, each containing an individual wish, will be available by early November to Tampa Congregations Beth Am, Kol Ami, Rodeph Sholom and Schaarai Zedek; Beth Israel in Sun City Center and Beth Shalom in Brandon. As in previous years, congregants may select one or more pillows and purchase the enclosed wish, valued at $10.

Families of all sizes, as well as senior couples – all Community Food Bank recipients – submit requests for holiday items. A majority of the requests are for household necessities, food and personal items.

Wish List donations are needed before Thanksgiving for distribution to families celebrating Chanukah and the December holidays. There is also an opportunity to sponsor an entire family’s Holiday Wish List. The cost depends on the size of a family and ranges from $75 - $250.

Donations may be made by calling (813) 960-1848, or visiting
