The Women’s Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara launched an emergency special project dubbed the "Blankets for Bubbe" Campaign.
This initiative was in response to the ongoing emergency situation in Israel requiring the purchase of down blankets for the elderly residents of two sheltered housing units in the north of Jerusalem. Most of these people are Holocaust survivors or Soviet war veterans.
The leadership of the Women’s Division quickly raised enough for over 190 blankets. Sometimes, the simplest solutions can make the biggest difference. On behalf of those who are not able to say it to you themselves, thank you!
Enjoy the photos below of those receiving the blankets.
