To give to those in our community who need extra help over the holidays.
There are more people in need now than at any time in the history of the JFS Polack Food Bank. In this last year alone, the amount of food JFS must purchase to meet the increased demand is up 38% over 2009. By donating today, you are purchasing a gift card for a family in need during the holidays.
Please donate $25, $50, $100 or more to show families in need that our community is here for them. In difficult times, nobody should have to feel alone.
1. To help the 47% of JFS Polack Food Bank clients who must choose between paying for food and paying for utilities - the “Heat or Eat” dilemma.
2. To help the 1,848 community members who used the JFS Polack Food Bank in October, 2010. A 26% increase in just twelve months.
3. To help the family, friends and neighbors who are running out of options. 50% of those served in October were seniors; nearly 10% were children.
