"Just wanted to say a big thank-you for the insulated tote in our welcome gift bag. I am traveling for work and love that I can take care of feeding my infant with the convenience of this little bag. Thanks again!" - Bonnie Shewcraft, Alexandria



 *Bag items may vary. Limit one bag per family.

The ambassadors program is wholly funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and its United Jewish Endowment Fund.
