Sunday, December 18 – 10:30 a.m., Bothwell Center, 2466 8th St. in Livermore. Bring your gift for our adoptive family, a potato, and donation of boxed or canned food. We’ll have games and crafts for adults and kids, latke making (and eating!) and, of course, our candle lighting ceremony.
This year we are “adopting” The Zila Family from Bosnia through the Jewish Family and Children’s Services holiday giving program. The Zilas lived through the war in Bosnia and lost many family members. They left their country and lived as refugees in Germany until they were able to come to the U.S. They wanted a better life for their children. The father works, and the mother stays home with her children. The children, a 12-year old boy and a 9-year old girl, are doing very well in school.
Some suggestions on the family wish list include:
Boy – 12-years old: Color: red. Likes: Legos and games. Size: 14/16. Shirt or sweater, pajamas, jacket, board game, school supplies, backpack, queen sheet set, queen blanket, gift card to iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Old Navy or Target.
Girl – 9-years old: Color: green. Likes: singing and dancing. Size: 10/11. Shirt or sweater, pajamas, jacket, board game, school supplies, backpack, full sheet set, full blanket, lotion/soap, gift card to ITunes, Barnes and Noble, Old Navy or Target.
