A Client Story:

Dear Avital,
Thank you so much for the wonderful Passover package of holiday foods.  I really appreciate this gift, plus those given to me for Hannukah and Purim.   I haven't tasted Kichel in about 60 years, so this particular item was a special treat.

I've enjoyed meeting with the Jewish Family Service volunteers who delivered the food. 

My deep thanks to you and to them.

- Mrs. A.W.
