MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- More than 30 women recently came together to try their hands at painting on canvas and to learn about opportunities for involvement and volunteering at Westchester Jewish Center in Mamaroneck.
The event was a joint effort by UJA-Federation of New York’s Larchmont-Mamaroneck Women’s Philanthropy and the Sisterhoods of Westchester Jewish Center and Larchmont Temple. During the event, a professional artist guided participants through the steps to create their own pieces of art.
During the evening, women were encouraged to sign up for upcoming events and hands-on volunteer experiences, including serving lunch to seniors, preparing a meal at a group home and assisting at a sports day held by a residential treatment center for youth.
“I’m always amazed by all of the areas where UJA-Federation has an impact,” said Caren Osten Gerszberg of Larchmont, who serves as Larchmont-Mamaroneck Women’s Philanthropy area chair. “I was surprised to learn how many ways my own family and friends have been touched by our programs and services, as well. You, too, may have benefitted from programs we support without even knowing it.”
She made reference to area agencies supported by UJA-Federation, including Jewish Home Lifecare’s Sarah Neuman Center and the JCC of Mid-Westchester.
