Project Hope volunteers deliver food for the holidays

One Bronx volunteer group is making sure that those in need can enjoy the holiday season.



The Bronx Jewish Community Council is working with several organizations to deliver Hanukkah packages to those who might need a little lift in spirits.



The initiative, called Project Hope, is reaching hundreds of lonely, needy or homebound members of the elderly Jewish community.



Volunteers made and delivered about 400 bags full of food for a Hanukkah meal, including egg noodles and potato pancake mix.



Organizers say it's the interactions with the package recipients that they love best.



The event ended on Sunday, but the Bronx Jewish Community Council is always looking for volunteers, especially to help with their food pantry.
