Gift Of Giving

JCC day campers hold

toy drive for Bottomless

Toy Chest.

y

oni Nadiv, unit head of the
Trekkers (ages 9-12) at the
Jewish Community Center of
Metropolitan Detroit day camp in West
Bloomfield, was looking for something
meaningful for his campers to do this
summer. He contacted Elana Weinstein,
program coordinator of the Bottomless
Toy Chest in Birmingham, to set up a
way for the campers to help other kids
in the community.
He felt the Bottomless Toy Chest,
which collects toys for pediatric cancer
patients, was a perfect organization
for a tikkun olam (repair of the world)
project.
For several months, Trekkers hosted a
campwide toy drive to collect new toys.
They created a great sign to promote the
toy drive, which amassed 150 toys.
On July 17, Trekkers and staff spent
the day wrapping toys themselves
and giving them a personal touch
meant to lift the spirits of the hospi-
talized patients. The event was called
"Chanukah in July"
