Jewish Family Service is again seeking donations for the We Remember You Project. The project, which is now in its 14th year, supports Jewish families locally who struggle to make ends meet.
“Once again, we are asking for donations, rather than items for food baskets,” said Rose Shea, director of JFS. “Recipients of the gift cards have mentioned how much they enjoy picking out their own food and, with the pandemic continuing, we want to make sure that everyone is kept safe.”
The monetary donations will be used for the purchase of grocery gift cards along with a monetary gift. Tax-deductible donations should be sent to JFS by Thursday, August 12, with “We Remember You” written on the memo line. Checks should be mailed to Jewish Family Service, 500 Clubhouse Rd., Vestal, NY 13850.
“The We Remember You Project is a wonderful way to give tzedakah during this time of self-reflection and gratitude,” noted Rose Shea, JFS director. “The Binghamton community has been especially generous during the pandemic and JFS clients so appreciate it. This program is another way to show our neighbors they are not forgotten and the community really cares.”
Shea added, “The We Remember You Project has been a success all these years and I know the recipients appreciate all that is done for them. Let’s make this another successful year. Projects like this are what Jewish Family Service and the Jewish Federation are all about.”
