Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) is excited to host a Flamingo Fundraiser in which proceeds will support the agency’s commitment to helping children, families, and seniors in the region.

Now is your chance to support this campaign by purchasing a distinctive gift for your family, friends, and neighbors this holiday season.

For $50, you can send 20 vibrantly colored birds to someone on your gift list and for $75, you can remain anonymous so they’ll have no idea who flocked them.

For $150, you can supersize your flock and JFS will send up to 100 blue flamingos to celebrate a special occasion, like a birthday or anniversary.

Want to prevent your yard from being in the flocking flight path? Purchase Flocking Insurance for $100, and your home will be protected from these feathered invaders.

Flamingo migration territories include Absecon, Atlantic City, Brigantine, Downbeach, Egg Harbor Township, Galloway, Linwood, Mays Landing, Northfield, and Somers Point. Flamingos will nest in the yard for up to 48 hours.

“Last year, JFS’ blue flamingos flocked more than 80 homes throughout the region and raised nearly $10,000 to support vital programs and services for residents in our community. The overwhelming positive feedback from supporters and those who were flocked showed JFS that it’s important to create new and unique ways to raise essential dollars for our agency while also bringing uplifting joy to neighborhoods,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.

The JFS Flocking Fundraiser runs from now through February 28, 2022, with a goal of raising $15,000 to support programs and services.

The agency is grateful for the sponsorship of Rene Kane & Company as well as The Law Offices of Melissa Rosenblum.
