The Mitzvah Magic Program
brings together teams of volunteers who are paired (anonymously) with families selected by Jewish Family and Children's Services.
The circles assemble baskets for Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah and Passover. Over the last 10 years, Mitzvah Magic has helped more than 200 families. For a family struggling to make ends meet, gifts and holiday foods provided by Tucson's Mitzvah Magic program are "a godsend," one recipient says. "Just receiving these gifts made a hard day much happier," said another. An 11-year-old girl whose family received a basket wrote a thank you note in a rainbow of crayon colors. "I was really surprised when my parents came home with tons of stuff. We are very grateful for everything and it was all very useful." Yet another family wrote, "Someday we will return the favor."
In honor of the 10th Anniversary of Mitzvah Magic consider bringing along a gift card in the amount of $10 to contribute to the Women's Philanthropy Mitzvah Magic Program.
