This year, we will honor the work of JFS by not gathering for our Celebration of Service.
Instead, we are expanding our service to the community to meet the need for increased counseling and support services, requests for Kosher Meals on Wheels, emergency financial assistance, and connection with our community chaplain.
We invite you to join us in increasing our presence in the St. Paul community. Visit our website at jfssp.org/covid to learn more about our services that may be particularly helpful during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the cancellation of the Celebration of Service, our revenue and reserves have suffered large losses. We have also incurred significant costs to enable JFS employees to work remotely. Please give generously today to help us meet these extraordinary needs.
Your donation will underwrite Community Chaplaincy, Community Support Program, Connection to Community Resources, Counseling & Mental Health Services, Emergency Financial Assistance, Kosher Meals on Wheels, PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active & Rewarding Lives), & PEARLS for Caregivers. For example, $250 delivers Kosher Meals on Wheels to an isolated senior for one month; $500 pays for utility assistance for three clients who lost their jobs; and $1,000 pays for 10 counseling sessions for people isolated and sheltering in place.
