Jewish Family Service (JFS) encourages strong families, thriving children, healthy adults, energized seniors and vital communities. JFS impacts thousands of lives throughout Atlantic & Cape May Counties each year.
What's NEW at JFS:
To those who celebrate, Chag Sameach! In observance of Sukkot, all offices will be closed Tuesday, September 21.
Help JFS reach its goal of raising $35,000. A tax-deductible gift enables JFS to continue to help individuals and families who turn to our agency for assistance.
The JFS Card Party, held on August 26 at Harbor Pines Golf Club, raised more than $11,000 for Village by the Shore. Over 55 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.
In shore communities, the end of the summer season occurs just beyond Labor Day when summer residents and visitors dip their toe in the ocean one more time, purchase a few souvenirs and clean out their cupboards. For those individuals and families who have a surplus of non-perishable food and prefer not to lug it back home, JFS is the place for you.
The grant will be used for JFS general operating support to assure programs and services continue to be available for community residents in need.
