Thanksgiving | Chanukah 2021
J-Cares is an opportunity for community members to participate in a community service project. The basic American concept of community service is closely tied to the basic Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), which urges us to make a difference in the lives of others who may be less fortunate than ourselves.
The JCC is having 2 J-Cares programs this holiday season:
We are “adopting” 10 Jewish Family Service Agency (JFSA) families for Thanksgiving. We will be collecting Thanksgiving foods such as: Mashed Potatoes, Canned Vegetables, Gravy, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Apple, Pecan and Pumpkin Pies. Each family will receive a bag of all these items plus a $25 gift card to Smiths to purchase a turkey. The bags will be delivered to the 10 families before Thanksgiving. In addition, we will be supplying kosher Thanksgiving food to Aishel Avraham to provide food to local Kosher families.
We are “adopting” 10 families from Aishel Avraham for Chanukah. Each family has received a wish list for each child. If you or your business wish to "adopt" a family, please let us know. We will provide as many items on the wish list to each family. In addition, we will be accepting other basic necessities and unwrapped toys to JFSA.
If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please let us know who you are representing, if part of a group. For example, Women's Philanthropy or JCC News & Schmooze.
Please drop off food and toys to the JCC between 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday - Friday.
