Making a Difference Monday | Maria’s Story

January 9th, 2017 - Brett Diaz

Maria’s Story: Maria is a domestic abuse survivor who is being assisted by Goodman JFS. This past November, our teen board delivered Thanksgiving dinners and fresh-cut flowers to several of our agency’s clients, and Maria was one of the basket recipients.

Dear JFS Family,

Thank you for coordinating the purchase and delivery of the Thanksgiving meal and flowers. The generosity and support from JFS over the last few years has been a source of comfort and stability for myself and my family as we heal from this domestic abuse situation.
The Thanksgiving meal was beyond my expectations and to include the flowers was a delightful surprise. The flowers are especially meaningful to me. Having fresh flowers on the table makes the house feel special, like the holidays are approaching. It was very thoughtful of you to include flowers and to know the effect they could have on brightening our environment and mood. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and the extra effort.
Thank you again for helping me get my life in order.

With love, Maria
