GIFT held a hugely successful food appeal this year collecting surplus Mishloach Manot in the GIFT warehouse in Hendon as well as at collection points in Golders Green, Edgware, Borehamwood, Stamford Hill, Manchester and Israel.
In excess of £25,000 worth of food was collected from the appeals and will be distributed to hundreds of struggling families throughout the year.
Michelle Barnett, GIFT Director, was delighted with the outcome and overwhelmed by people’s generosity, in addition to the energy and stamina of The Village Shul’s Batmitzvah Club as well as other volunteers who came on the day to sort and pack the food.
GIFT’s innovative text code donation service for matonos le’evyonim, brought in an amazing £12,385 which was distributed on Purim Day and was enormously appreciated by the recipients.
