FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida organization is making a special delivery ahead of Hanukkah.

Goodman Jewish Family Services is spreading joy in Fort Lauderdale. The organization will deliver more than 600 gift bags throughout Broward County containing holiday staples and some necessities.

Their goal is to comfort Holocaust survivors.
