Fun seasonal programs to enjoy in December.
Inspired by the agency’s Anti-Racism Committee (ARC),
the design was created to showcase the staff and the work they do in support of JFS’ core value “tikkun olam” (healing the world).
More than 220 bags were collected to stock the food pantry.
Donations are needed to make Thanksgiving special for local families.
The funding will allow JFS to continue to help older adults, over the age of 50, thrive in the community by providing essential services and programs.
In 2021, the JFS Food Pantry distributed more than 100,000 pounds of food and basic essentials to over 8,600 individuals and families, including 3,402 children, and delivered 3,045 Kosher ready-to-eat meals to seniors.
Nearly 200 Village members, including 25 Holocaust survivors, rely on JFS to provide an array of programs and services including care coordination, transportation, socialization events, grocery shopping and delivery, friendly check-ins, and more.
Nearly 110 attendees gathered for an afternoon of games including Canasta and Mahjong as well as enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch while honoring the memory of community philanthropist, Bonnie Gurwicz.
For those who find they have a surplus of non-perishable foods, basic essentials, and baby products and prefer not to lug them back home, then Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties is the place for you.
Mental health treatment is imperative for many. Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties is working to keep up with counseling requests.
