Chanukah Re-gifting

Take a break from the sales this Sunday, Dec. 12, to consider those less fortunate. The National Council of Jewish Women's seventh annual Clothing Give-Away offers you varied opportunities to give back for a change. Volunteer to help bag clothing and answer questions, and bring in last season's duds you know you won't be donning again anyway.

9 a.m.-3 p.m. 543 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles. (323) 651-2930.
