The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey and its family of agencies is committed to meeting the critical needs of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can help directly support individuals and families in need with your gift to our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. Thank you for your generosity during these unprecedented times.

Help our most vulnerable during this pandemic with the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

DONATE BY MAIL- Send check to: Jewish Federation of SNJ, 1301 Springdale Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003.
In the memo line put: COVID-19 Donation.


We are challenging our community to raise $500,000 to help meet critical needs. 

 

The Jewish Federation and our family of agencies - as well as hundreds of volunteers - have been working tirelessly for the past 6 weeks to provide help, comfort, and strength to community members in need. Many days, we receive over 100 calls for food and financial assistance. The need in South Jersey is great. We now need YOUR HELP to continue addressing the immediate needs of individuals and families in our community. 

 

 Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have already raised over $300,000. Combined with the $186,000 in generous grants we secured from The Raymond & Gertrude R. Saltzman Foundation, the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc., and the Jewish Federation's Jewish Women's Foundation, we have just $79,000 to go to meet our goal of $500,000. 

Every dollar raised for the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will provide direct support to individuals and families in need right here in our own backyard.

A message from Sydria Schaffer, President of the Jewish Community Foundation, Inc.

The Jewish Federation family of agencies has been hard at work these past few weeks ensuring that the critical needs of the community are met during this pandemic: 

"Just seeing your envelope in my mailbox brought a calm over me. And then to my complete surprise when I opened the envelope, there was not one card, but two! Prayers answered! Without your gift card, I would not have had the money to pay for and get my medicine. Miracles like this take my breath away - in a good way! Just know that I am forever grateful." - JFCS client

 

"I was able to get the family I was assigned to everything on their list and when after speaking with the mom, Tracey, I learned she had an 11 year old son. I added apple juice, cookies and ice cream to the list! The drop off at the curb gave me the opportunity to still say hello from the door. A sweet family. I was humbled and privileged to help." -Suzanne, Shop & Drop Volunteer 

 

My client received the food and was in tears. She called me to make sure that she hadn't gotten someone else's bags because there was so much food that she couldn't believe it was all for her. She became emotional on the phone and just said: "[these kindnesses] continue to just show me how many good people there are in the world."

 

"The JFCS has given me a reason to go on. I try to give back to the JFCS community in any way I can. I so appreciate the ShopRite card, I cried.”

Staying connected. Helping those in need.

Supporting our Jewish community.
