In response to the impact of the pandemic on the most vulnerable in our community, the Jewish Federation’s Board of Directors has approved the immediate distribution of $50,000 in unrestricted funds from our Annual Campaign to help those with critical needs.

It will provide resources for those isolated and alone, those who are losing income or those whose living situations may be comprised. The funds will be distributed through the Federation to agencies and organizations that provide direct assistance to those in need.

It is at times like these, when we are distanced from each other, that community means the most. We are committed to working together to confront the challenges ahead and assure a healthy future for all of us.
