arcy Feldman, pres-
ident of Reset-
tlement Service,
looked at the stacks of
brightly wrapped gifts and
nearly cried.
"This is such an incredible
outpouring of people wan-
ting to help," she said.
"There's no way to properly
thank everybody."
More than 50 women last
week attended a shower at
Wendy Heller's West Bloom-
field home to benefit newly
arriving Russian families.
The former Soviet families
couldn't be there, but that
didn't stop guests from br-
inging close to 120 presents
and $600 in checks.
Karen Kraft of Farm-
ington Hills thought of pots
and pans. Barb Horowitz of
Bloomfield Township
brought a highchair and four
sets of towels. Jane Hauser
of Lathrup Village came
with an iron, sets of glasses
and towels.
"Soviet Jewish families
arrive with only two suit-
cases to begin their lives in
our community," Mrs.
Feldman told the room full
of women. "They des-
perately need basic
household items."
Resettlement Service
operates a warehouse for
Soviet families at Northland
Center in Southfield.
Warehouse hours are Tues-
day and Wednesday from 12
p.m. to 2 p.m.
"Our Soviet families de-
serve to get some new
things, too," said Joyce

Meckler Miller of West
Bloomfield.
A recent Jewish News edi-
torial, "If It's Garbage, Keep
It," made such an impres-
sion on shower hostess Roz
Blanck, she decided to do
something about it.
The editorial lamented the
number of dirty and damag--
ed items donated to the
warehouse. "I was appalled
when I read the editorial,"
Mrs. Blanck said. "I had no
idea the situation was that
bad."
Mrs. Blanck remembered a
shower she attended last

year for underprivileged
children in Pontiac. She
called some friends, and 16
women planned the event.
When the shower was
over, gifts were taken to the
warehouse where case'
workers from Resettlement
Service took inventory and
sent new gifts to 60 newly .
arrived Soviet Jewish
families.
"You don't need an organ-
ization behind you to do this•
sort of thing," Mrs. Blanck
said. "We just hope our
shower inspires others to do
the same." ❑
