First of all, thank you so much to everyone who has donated food for the JFS food closet. This food program supports Peninsula Jewish families who come to Jewish Family Service for financial assistance. They all struggle with monthly expenses and these items are always a welcome help to them.
At this time, the most needed items include tuna and peanut butter as well as gift cards for gasoline and grocery gift cards to help with expenses for perishable frozen or refrigerated items. We greatly appreciate your support of our agency and the services that we provide to those in need. All donations of food or gift cards are tax deductible and may be dropped off at the JFS office or at the main desk at the UJC. If it is more convenient, please send gift cards via mail to Jewish Family Service 2700 Spring Road Newport News, Virginia 23606Libby Batten, JFS Social Worker
