JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES RESPONSE TO COVID-19

The health, safety and well-being of our clients, volunteers and community members are the primary focus of Jewish Family Services. The COVID-19 pandemic and its local impacts do not change our focus or our mission, which is to provide a range of supportive and mental health services to assist all of our members to meet life’s challenges.

 

The JFS Food Pantry Will Remain Open

As an added safety precaution, arrangements have been made for clients to pick up their food bags on Thursdays outside our building. 

 

Van Service

The van is operating for older adults for medical appointments only, and will transport one passenger at a time. Drivers will use extra care cleaning the van by wiping down surfaces before and after each trip, wearing gloves when appropriate, and following CDC safety guidelines.

To schedule a ride, contact Marcia Hermelin, (336) 852-4829 x222 three days ahead.

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.
