Be a Friend this Holiday Season, Support JFS Annual Campaign

Posted on December 17, 2014

As 2014 comes to a close, Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties reflects on the many accomplishments the agency has had over the past year.

  • Atlantic Homeless Alliance secured permanent housing for more than 300 people since its February launch.
  • Village by the Shore welcomed nearly a dozen new members, offering expanded services for adults 50+.
  • JFS therapists provided more than 6,000 hours of specialized counseling for children and their family.
  • The Food Pantry served 23,000 pounds of essential food for residents living throughout Atlantic County.

From hosting food drives to volunteering to supporting events and fundraising campaigns, thousands of community members including businesses, schools and organizations helped JFS to achieve these many accomplishments. This year, JFS supporters helped strengthen the lives of 6,500 community members in need. With many locals struggling to meet basic needs, the agency’s goal is to help strengthen even more families in 2015.

As you make your end-of-year contributions, consider being a Friend of JFS and remember the many ways the agency enriches the community every day. Your tax-deductible donation can be made online or mailed directly to JFS, 607 North Jerome Avenue, Margate.
