Click here to donate to our Emergency Financial Assistance Fund!
Tuesday, November 27, 2018 is GIVING TUESDAY, but the need is year-round! Please plan to make a donation on GIVING TUESDAY to JFCS for our Emergency Assistance Fund. Our goal is to raise $2,000 to sustain our year-round efforts to help as many people as we can who are having trouble providing the basics for themselves and their families.
We provide food and grocery store gift cards for families who are struggling to put food on the table due to under-employment. We pay utility bills for our neighbors who, because of unexpected difficulties, are in danger of going without heat or water. We offer bus passes and taxi vouchers for people who need to go to work, doctor appointments, or job interviews but have no transportation.
JFCS is here for the entire community–your friends, your neighbors, your family members–in tough times. Please help us help more people.
- A $100 donation will help us pay a utility bill for a single mom whose hours were unexpectedly cut back at her job.
- A $25 donation will purchase two taxi vouchers for round trip transportation to a job interview for an unemployed father.
- A $15 donation will purchase baby formula for a mother who is a victim of domestic violence and decides to seek shelter.
