Back by popular demand! From December 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022, the JFS Flocking Fundraiser returns to raise funds for programs and services that support children, families and seniors in our region.
For $50, you can send 20 vibrantly colored birds to someone on your gift list and for $75, you can remain anonymous so they’ll have no idea who flocked them. For $150, you can supersize your flock and JFS will send up to 100 blue flamingos to celebrate a special occasion, like a birthday or anniversary. CLICK HERE TO SUPPORT.
Want to prevent your yard from ending up in the flamingo landing zone? Purchase Flocking Insurance for $100 and your home will be protected from these feathered invaders. Flamingo migration territories include Downbeach, Atlantic City, Somers Point, Linwood, Northfield, Egg Harbor Township, Absecon, Brigantine, Mays Landing and Galloway. Flamingos will nest in yards for up to 48 hours.
“When it comes to fun and creative ways to raise money to support the agency’s programs and services, the JFS staff truly thinks outside of the box,” said Andrea Steinberg, Chief Executive Officer of Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties. “Last year's Flocking Fundraiser was a new and unique way to raise essential dollars for our agency while also bringing joy to neighborhoods. We are excited to bring it to our communities once again,” she added.
