Here is an email from ProjectMOT:
I know that the never-ending, non-stop eating holidays have just finished, but we are looking at October 20th for the Hanukkah boxes. (Hanukkah is really early this year.)
We need chocolate Hanukkah gelt, kipot, challah covers, and crochet or knit scarves (4′ x 5″, non-neon colors, no fringe, washable yarn), small game or puzzle books.
Please let me know if you are planning to attend the packing morning. It won’t take long as we don’t have more than 150 boxes so far.
For those of you who can’t make it to the packing day in the Los Angeles area, ProjectMOT is happy to accept donations of the above items to include in the boxes — or gelt with which to buy these items.
You can reach ProjectMOT project coordinator Joan Rimmon at ProjectMOT@aol.com
P.S. If you are interested in reading a work-in-progress about being Jewish and being part of the U.S. Army occupying force in Germany starting in September 1970, you can read new chapters of my Cold War memoir TALES OF AN AMERICAN OCCUPYING GERMANY at http://budurl.com/TAintro
