Did you know that the average family spends around $670 a year on school supplies and clothing alone? For low-income families, this is nearly an impossible task without the support of organizations like Jewish Family & Children’s Service. Each year, JFCS coordinates a backpack and school supply drive for children and families in need.
Because of YOU, in 2021 JFCS successfully provided prepacked backpacks to over 1,700 children and teens in our community: Children we serve through our healthcare centers, foster care programs, domestic violence victim assistance programs and those we serve at our four integrated healthcare clinics. We are hoping to make the same impact again this year, but we cannot do it without your help.
By donating $50 to JFCS, you can sponsor a child for 1 backpack; a backpack filled with supplies for him or her to utilize throughout the upcoming school year!
P.S.To ensure each student receives supplies in time for the 2022/2023 school year, we request that donations are made by May 31st, 2022.
