Give A Senior Who is Alone a Sweet Passover During this COVID-19 Crisis

Miriam is 92 years young, full of energy and, according to her canasta group at the Senior Center, she is as upbeat as anyone. This year has been a difficult one for her. She lost her husband Abe of 67 years, and she has struggled with great loneliness ever since. She also finds it challenging now to keep up with paying her bills and she has fallen behind on her rent. Always having looked forward to Passover, sadly, she will be alone this year. Her children and grandchildren are unable to come to Florida due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Her holiday table will be empty and her Passover meal sparse.

At Goodman JFS the health and well-being of our community is first and foremost. Throughout this crisis we will continue to serve the most vulnerable in our community.

The current crisis will impact greater numbers of people like Miriam who are alone, and lack access to family and friends as well as essential services. The programs at Goodman JFS are dedicated to helping seniors remain healthy and safe in their homes, by providing assistance with food, housing costs and basic necessities. As we enter the Passover holiday please help Miriam and the hundreds of seniors like her in our community. So many are like Miriam with family far away, and others have outlived their peers and their resources.

Your donation to Goodman will make all the difference for Miriam at this time. Please give generously so that she and other seniors in our community may have a “sweet” Passover.

Please give generously today.

Much gratitude,

Stephen Jackman
Chairman of the Board
