Rabbi Benjy Brackman executive director of Chabad of NW Metro feels that this is a great way to share the light of Chanukah with the community. “With Chanukah this year beginning on December 1st we thought this would be a great way for kids to share their Chanukah gift with less fortunate children during the winter holiday season”, says Brackman.
Mr. Bob Flory chaplain at Chidlren’s Hospital welcomes the gifts. “ We are very appreciative of the generosity of your (Chabad of NW Metro Denver’s) community and appreciate you thinking of the children that are patients at the Children Hospital, says Mr. Flory
