TD Charitable Foundation Supports JFS with Donation
Posted on May 14, 2014
The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®,is proud to announce its support of Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS). As part of the foundation’s commitment to giving back in the community, TD Charitable Foundation recently donated $5,000 to JFS in early 2014, making them a Leader Donor of the agency.
The funds from TD Charitable Foundation will help support Atlantic Homeless Alliance (AHA), one of the agency’s newest programs, which provides a comprehensive and coordinated system of care for Atlantic County residents who are experiencing or at risk of becoming homeless. Specifically, the donation will support the Documentation and Housing Program which shelters the homeless and helps them to obtain the resources that can lead to long term housing stability. This may include assisting with initial costs such as rent deposits and utilities as well as securing proper identification documents. Proper identification is not only essential for obtaining permanent housing, but also for employment and other benefits.
With the support of many generous donors, like TD Charitable Foundation, Jewish Family Service serves 3,700 local individuals per year through a variety of services. Responding to the needs of the community, JFS offers counseling, case management, and an array of other services including family and children’s programs, older adult assistance, autism support, Kosher Meals-on-Wheels, a community food pantry and diabetes advocacy.
