Passover Package Delivery
DOROT’s Passover Package Delivery brings hundreds of older adults and volunteers together to share warmth and companionship. Join us this March in Manhattan or Westchester to deliver a thoughtful, seasonal care package and connect with an older neighbor!
“It was wonderful! The visit from these two remarkable young women was like a breath of fresh air. Cannot thank them and DOROT enough!” - Sheila (DOROT senior)
