Some 50 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 these luncheons for seven years and the generous donations of Scarsdale families have helped fulfill holiday wishes. At this year’s luncheon, nearly 150 toys and more than $1,800 in gift certificates were collected for the annual WJCS Have-a-Heart for the Holidays Gift Drive. The items will be distributed to families in need served by WJCS, which sponsors more than 70 programs throughout Westchester. WJCS welcomes donations of items all year long. To donate goods or funds, contact Meryl Lewis at 914-761-0600 ext. 222. For more information about WJCS, visit www.wjcs.com.
