For many years Bergen County Section has collected gifts at holiday time for the children and families served by our community services and coalition partners. We work with the YCS Holley Center, Women’s Rights Information Center, Alternatives to Domestic Violence, Center for Hope and Safety and HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Pre-School Youngsters) to enhance the holidays for their clients. This year we will also be helping families from Jewish Family Services. These gifts take many forms from Target gift certificates ($10 each) to toys and clothing. HIPPY requests unwrapped gifts suitable for preschoolers. If you would like to be a part of this “feel good“ experience, bring your gifts to Game Day on November 17 or to our Open Board meeting on December 8 or give them to a friend who’s on the board. Evalyn Brownstein, and Edie Kaplan,, are the contacts for HIPPY. For more information, contact Henrietta Wolfeiler,, (201) 996-0932.
