New JFS Program—Help us help our community!

CARS

A Vehicle Donation Program

 

JFS has partnered with CARS, an experienced national vehicle donation program.

JFS will receive 80% of the profits when you donate your car.

These funds will help support the programs, services, and emergency assistance fund of JFS.  

The process is simple and requires only a call to JFS to begin.

CARS will contact you to pick up the car, handles all paperwork, and will send you a tax receipt.

Call JFS (336) 852-4829 and say you want to donate your vehicle—car, truck, boat and even airplanes!

You may also visit CARS online and begin the process through the special JFS portal.

A huge “Yasher Koach” to our Greensboro Jewish community volunteers at Christmas at Cone/Wesley Long hospitals this year! Thanks to the efforts of 125 volunteers providing over 380 service hours we allowed many of the regular volunteers and non-medical professionals the opportunity to spend the Christmas holiday with their families. 
 
This is the 43rd year we have participated in this wonderful mitzvah and we look forward to coming back next year adding yet another branch of Cone Health System, the Women’s Hospital. 
 
Warmly,
