Patty Packs: A project of love

"Thank you to everyone who contributed items for the 'Patty Packs' for the women at local Veteran Administration Hospitals. In late fall, seventy-two 'Patty Packs' were delivered to VA hospitals in Tuskegee, Columbus and Atlanta. 

"We are sad to report that Patty, who was a veteran and the inspiration for the packs, passed away in October. Patty was the sister of our Jackie..., and we offer our condolences.

"In Patty’s memory, Auburn Hadassah will continue to collect toiletries and hygiene items since they are greatly needed and appreciated."

-from our newsletter

To contribute to our next round of Patty Packs, please add to the basket at the synagogue.
