JFS Turkey Drive Feeds Hundreds

Posted on December 07, 2016

Thanks to the generous support of our community, Jewish Family Service fed hundreds of local individuals and families Thanksgiving meals. Throughout October and November, JFS collected monetary contributions as well as non-perishable food items to provide meals to individuals and families in need.

The JFS Turkey Drive had the generous support of nearly 100 community members who donated to the drive. James Klinghoffer donated $25,000 to benefit the Turkey Drive and the James Klinghoffer Nursing and Nutrition program. Businesses, organizations and groups such as Wawa in Margate, Ocean City Home Bank, Right at Home, Kulanu, Shirat Hayam, Wells Fargo,

among others, hosted collections to help put turkey on the table this Thanksgiving.

Jewish Family Service accepts non-perishable food donations throughout the year. Monetary donations can also be made online at www.jfsatlantic.org or mailed to JFS, 607 North Jerome Avenue, Margate. If you have a question regarding the JFS Food Pantry or how you can assist, please contact Eileen Dillon, Community Initiatives Coordinator at 609-822-1108 x 249 or edillon@jfsatlantic.org
