Dear Friends of Goodman JFS,
This is Stan.
Stan is 89 years old and lives alone. His wife passed away after a long illness, and they never had any children. Stan worked hard all of his life but found he did not have enough money for medical bills and burial expenses. He lives in a modest condo, fell behind on his maintenance payments and was threatened with eviction.
Stan called Goodman Jewish Family Services. Our caring staff spoke with him, and we were able to provide him with the help he desperately needed. We helped him get current with his maintenance payments. Our social workers saw he had been living with a broken air conditioner, and we were able to fix that for him as well. Stan also qualified for a food gift card each month.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Did you know that for the price of one cup of coffee, you have the ability to make a real difference to someone in your community?
Goodman JFS has served those in dire need in Broward County for more than 54 years. Goodman JFS is dedicated to empowering individuals, strengthening families and protecting the vulnerable by providing exceptional social services to the entire community, based on Jewish values. We help everyone, regardless of religion, race, ethnic background or sexual orientation.
Thanks to generous donors like you, we are able to help care for seniors in need in our community.
On Giving Tuesday, you have the power to help us give so much to people who have so little.
For less than $6.00, you make it possible for us to continue to help seniors like Stan.
Please consider forgoing your cup of coffee for just one day and donate $5.00.
To you it is just another cup of coffee, but to our clients, it is literally survival.
What better way to kick off the season of giving than to contribute to an organization that cares for those who have no one else to turn to?
(If you really want to be generous, give up a week’s worth of coffee and donate $16.25.)
#BeGenerous #GiveUpYourCoffeeForGood #GivingTuesday
Please also consider an end-of-year tax-deductible gift to help even more people.
On behalf of all of us at Goodman JFS, thank you.
