As they do every year, members of the Jewish Children’s Service Organization (JCSO) purchased, wrapped and delivered Chanukah gifts to Jewish children in the Hartford area. For more than a century, the all-volunteer organization has provided funds for basic needs — as well as school and camp scholarships — to Jewish families in dire financial straits. For information contact JCSO at P.O. Box 370386, Bishop’s Corner Branch, West Hartford, CT 06137-0386.
