Samuel and Beatrice Quittman Holiday Gift Fund

Please help us give children a happy holiday season by supporting
the Samuel and Beatrice Quittman Holiday Gift Fund at Goodman JFS

The Samuel and Beatrice Quittman Holiday Gift Fund

Every day, Goodman JFS assists families with emergency needs such as rent, food, medication and utilities. For most of these families, each day is a struggle to provide basic needs. While we may assume Chanukah or Christmas will be a joyous time, that will not be the case for many of our clients without your help.

The Samuel and Beatrice Quittman Holiday Gift Fund was established at Goodman JFS to ensure that no child is left out during the holidays. Goodman JFS provides gift cards to families in need, allowing parents the rare opportunity to select a gift of choice for their children.

Last year we brightened the holidays for 500 children who otherwise would have not received a gift!

Goodman JFS is asking you to bring joy to these families by supporting our Holiday Gift Card Collection.

Families receiving gift cards from Goodman JFS are clients of our agency, as well as other individuals in the community who are truly in need. This collection drive runs through December 23, the day before the first night of Chanukah.

We would like to distribute gift cards no later than December 1 to give parents time to shop for that special gift.

Please consider donating a gift card, and please share this email with your friends and family. People can support this effort from the comfort of their own homes and from anywhere in the country! What an easy way to give these children a happy holiday!

Thank you for helping us ensure that no child is forgotten this holiday season.

Co-chairs: Sheryl Greenwald and Ivy Feinstein
