#JFSFeedsFamilies : Support Turkey Drive
Posted on October 08, 2014
Jewish Family Service is dedicated to providing a Thanksgiving or holiday meal to anyone in need. Whether it is a friend, family member or neighbor, most locals know at least one person who has been directly affected by the recent casino closures. While the holidays are a joyous time, many will find it difficult to put a holiday meal on the table. Through its annual Holiday Turkey Drive, JFS provides community members with food throughout the season.
Here are ways the community can help:
- Donate A Meal – A donation of $30 (or more) provides a family with a Butterball or Kosher turkey (upon request) plus the holiday trimmings.
- Fill a Bag – Each meal JFS provides is complete with a variety of side dishes. Fill a bag with one of each of the following:
- macaroni and cheese
- mashed potatoes
- cranberry sauce
- string beans
- Along with each bag, a $20 donation allows the family to purchase a turkey to complete the meal. Gift cards to grocery stores are also welcome.
- Support Food Drive – JFS will be having a food drive at the ACME in Somers Point on November 13th from 10 am - 2 pm where shoppers can purchase Thanksgiving essentials to help feed families.
Need a turkey? JFS is here to put turkey on the table for individuals and families in the community. If you need a holiday turkey, please call 609-822-1108 and ask for an Intake representative.
To feed a family in need, donations can be mailed directly to JFS at 607 North Jerome Avenue, Margate, NJ 08402 or made online. If you have a question regarding the JFS Food Pantry or how you can assist, please contact Leigh Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
