First February Friday Updates

Hooray – SNOW! Now we can really say it’s been winter after all. Why do these Friday blogs always begin with a weather recap? Gotta start somewhere, I guess! Here’s what’s been happening at JFCS right here at the crossover between January & February:

-As per Kim Toebbe’s report: On Sunday at JFCS, the Jewish community came together in an enlightening, generous and delicious way for the Food Stamp Challenge Potluck and Information meeting. Many thanks to Sara Yamin for making and donating delicious homemade lasagna for a large crowd and to Ayala Golding for making Kosher lasagna. Thanks to all who brought food to share and food to add to the JFCS food pantry. Finally, thanks to all who participated in the Food Stamp Challenge and the potluck event.

Year-end letters. For those generous JFCS patrons, we’ve got your tax-deductibles listed and on their way. Put off your taxes for another day or so!

-For February, our Food Pantry is especially low on: pancake syrup, snack size bags of chips, snack size raisins, crackers, canned chicken, toilet paper, shampoo & conditioner. Please remember that all donated food must be in its original packaging, and to please exclude expired items from your donations. For more information, please contact Kim Toebbe (502) 452-6341 ext. 103.

Time is running out to register for Lost in Translation, our upcoming couples communication class. You only have until February 4 (this coming Monday) . Don’t wait, this is going to be a great class! Contact Ellen Shapira at (502) 452-6341 ext. 225 before February 4 to register.

Strengths Through Storytelling: Nailing the Job Interview is still taking applicants. Remember, you can get 10% off of your registration fee if you sign up early. Again, that class happens February 18 & 20, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

That’s what’s up! Look forward next week to another Things You Might Not Know Tuesday, and more of the news from our great Louisville agency – snow permitting 🙂
