JFS Provides Thanksgiving Meals to Local Families

Posted on December 01, 2020

Brothers Sam and Luke Goldstein collected more than 40 bags of food from friends, neighbors and local businesses.

With the generous support from our community, Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) was able to provide more than 600 bags of food to local individuals and families to enjoy a traditional dinner on the Thanksgiving holiday. Throughout October and November, JFS collected monetary donations and non-perishable food to provide a complete holiday meal to many in our area.

With contributions from community members as well as businesses, organizations and groups including: Esthetica, Eugene A. Tighe Middle School, Galloway Auto & Tire, Girl Scouts, Jewish Community Center Swim Team, Linwood Fire Department, Margate Playgroups Plus, Platinum Real Estate, Preferred Care, Triad Chiropractic and the William Ross School, who hosted collections to help put a turkey on the table for many this Thanksgiving holiday.

William H. Ross School students, their families, and faculty safely collected and sorted donations.

“Every year, JFS strives to assure everyone has a turkey on their table during the holidays. Thankfully, the contributions and support has been overwhelming and JFS was able to feed anyone who turned to us for a holiday meal,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.
