Dozens of volunteers help homebound Jewish residents prepare for Hanukkah

(12/05/04) CO-OP CITY - Some Bronx residents are preparing for Hanukkah by making sure their elderly neighbors have all they need to celebrate the holiday as well.

Dozens of volunteers came to the Project Hope House in Co-Op City on Sunday to deliver holiday bags to 500 homebound Bronx residents. The bags contained traditional Jewish food such as gefilte fish and potato pancakes as well as candles to use on a Menorah.

The deliveries are a joint venture by the Project Hope House and the Bronx Jewish Community Council. The groups will take on a similar project in the spring in preparation for Passover.
