Jewish Family Service is seeking donations for the We Remember You Project. The project, which is now in its 13th year, supports Jewish families locally who struggle to make ends meet.
Due to the pandemic and participant concerns with the risk of exposure to COVID-19, JFS has decided not to deliver food baskets for this year. In an effort to maintain safety while supporting Jewish community members in need, JFS is asking for monetary donations for the purchase of grocery gift cards along with a monetary gift. Tax deductible donations should be sent to JFS by Wednesday, September 9, 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 always been compassionate and generous. This is just another way to show our neighbors they are not forgotten and the community really cares.”
Shea noted, “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.”
