JFS Provides Thanksgiving Meals to Local Families

JFS, Jewish Family Services, provided Thanksgiving meals to local families through their annual turkey drive.

Nearly 25 Jewish Family Service staff, family and friends volunteered to sort and bag Thanksgiving holiday meals at Jewish Family Service in Margate for local individuals and families. The non-perishable foods provided a traditional holiday meal to those in need.

Thanks to the generous support from our community, Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties was able to provide hundreds of local individuals and families with a complete Thanksgiving meal. Throughout October and November, JFS collected monetary donations and non-perishable food to provide a traditional holiday meal to those in need.

“Each year, I am even more overwhelmed by the generosity of our community to help their neighbors in need,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer. “The support from this year’s collection enabled us to provide more than 520 bags of food to individuals and families for the holiday as well as stocked our pantry for the winter season,” she added.
