Make a Difference: Jewish Federation
WHO: Over 1,700 individuals are served by the Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut food pantry each year. Many of these people come month after month for three days worth of food.
AGENCY: Jewish Federation of Eastern CT
THEIR SITUATION: The federation has gotten to know many of its clients. The moms, dads, single parents, grandparents, retirees, and disabled — these folks struggle each month to pay their bills and still have enough left over for food. One emergency will wipe out a carefully planned monthly budget. The Federation would like to give six to 12 individuals a gift card to help them supplement their holiday shopping budgets — whether it's for a necessity or just a special treat.
WHAT TO GIVE: Gift cards to Wal-Mart, Target, Stop & Shop or Shop-Rite will help provide Christmas items and basic needs.
TO DONATE: Mail or drop off gift cards to JFEC, 28 Channing St., New London, CT 06320. If you don't have time to purchase a gift card/s, send us a check (made payable to JFEC) so the agency can purchase the gift cards. Any questions, contact Mimi at (860) 442-8062 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
