Members of B’nai B’rith, Mahoning Lodge 339, and the Jewish community at large put Operation Snowflake in motion on Christmas Day.
They filled volunteer positions at information desks and gift shops at St. Elizabeth Health Center on Belmont Avenue and Sharon Regional Health System in Sharon, Pa.
“The reason was to give volunteers, who are Christian, the chance to spend Christmas Day with their families,” said Neil Altman, who coordinates Operation Snowflake with his wife, Denise.
The Jewish service organization began the project in 1978 in the Valley; it is marking its 35th year...more.
