We Are Here for Times Like These

By Deb Frockt, CEO

As we experience a Passover unlike any of us has seen before, I’m struck by the power of adaptation and the resilience that can result when we embrace change.

With that in mind, I want to share with you that JFCS is adapting to meet the moment and will not be holding our signature fundraiser, the MOSAIC Awards, this year. We will recognize the 2020 honorees – Neeli Bendapudi, Di Tran, Berta Weyenberg, Kaveh Zamanian and Bapion Ziba – at the MOSAIC Awards in the spring of 2021.

We had ambitious goals for MOSAIC, and the funds we would have raised through that event are needed now more than ever. So, I am asking you to make a gift now that will immediately support the essential services JFCS provides to the most vulnerable people in our community.

Our compassionate, skilled professionals have ensured complete continuity of services to 367 households over the last month. Nearly every service we provide, we now provide virtually.

And, those things that must be in-person, are. JFCS continues weekly food pantry curbside pickup and home delivery service to 100 people each week; home care aides continue to care for the most vulnerable frail elders; and, our drivers ensure that seniors in need of life-sustaining medical appointments like chemotherapy and dialysis have rides to get there.

If you or someone you know needs help, please let us know.

We are here for times like these.
