Here are two ways to get into the holiday spirit through giving: The Afya Foundation, the Yonkers New York based organization that collects surplus medical and humanitarian supplies from this country and delivers them to help people in need in developing nations has announced an Adopt A Box program for the Holiday season.

Supporters are invited to come to the warehouse and decorate a box that will be shipped to African nations– in essence they decorate and personalize a gift of needed items that will improve the quality of life for people less fortunate.

Those not able to come to Afya, may also support a box through an on-line contribution and select a message and design that we can put on your box.

In the words of Danielle Butin founder and director of Afya” This is a fabulous opportunity for people to get together, have fun and help us send desperately needed humanitarian supplies to people in developing nations”

All Adopt a Box supporters will be listed on a roll of honor on the Afya web site

The Women of Reform Judaism of Westchester Reform Temple, 255 Mamaroneck Rd., Scarsdale are sponsoring their Annual Holiday Boutique with the help of over 35 specialty vendors offering a panoply of irresistible items for sale.  Affordability, easy one-stop shopping, handcrafted, local and international items were key goals in planning this free-to-the-public event.

In the spirit of the season, all proceeds generated by the vendor of South African handicrafts go directly to a pediatric HIV/AIDS clinic in Durban.  Much of WRJ’s profit benefits local designated charities over the course of the year.  And displaying goods from local merchants to Israeli-made items gives the shopper an opportunity to support a personal worthwhile interest as well.

Children’s gift items include toys and games; clothing such as embellished sweatshirts, accessories, T-shirts and yoga pants, hand-crocheted ponchos and capelets; fleece blankets;  perfect gift baskets for babies, young children and teachers; and whimsical as well as 14K and 18K jewelry for girls – baby to ‘tweens.  

For women, there is made-to-order clothing, sportswear, pashmina jackets; belts, shawls and scarves; exotic Turkish and Moroccan tunics and tea sets; handbags and evening bags; unusual jewelry --hand-crafted from Israel, costume and antique, cuff bracelets, and one-of-a-kind beadwork.

For the family: spa and food gift baskets; table linens; exquisite hand-made items from South Africa; French candles, cheese spreaders; découpage, one-of-a kind items such as jeweled wine gift bags, beaded pens and letter openers, stationery and note cards, and must-have handbag hangars. Handmade, unique prayer shawls and other Judaica items are especially discounted. Hand-crafted almond toffee and patisserie baked goods will also be sold.
