Some 65 women gathered recently at the home of Scarsdale resident Linda Plattus to enjoy lunch and contribute holiday gifts for children served by Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS). A WJCS Board member, Ms. Plattus has organized this luncheon for eight years for the annual WJCS Have-a-Heart for the Holidays Gift Drive. At this year’s event, 425 toys and more than $1,400 in gift certificates were collected to help fulfill holiday wishes. The items will be distributed to families in need served by WJCS, which sponsors more than 80 programs throughout Westchester. Contributing to the success of the event were several local businesses including Standing Room Only, Lange's Deli, Martine's Fine Bake Shoppe, Cherry Lawn and House of Flowers. WJCS welcomes donations of various items throughout the year. To donate goods or funds, contact Meryl Lewis at 914-761-0600 ext. 222. For more information about WJCS, visit www.wjcs.com.
