JFS seeks Passover funds for needy

With people beginning to prepare for Passover, which begins on Friday, March 30, Jewish Family Service is asking the local community to do a mitzvah by contributing funds to help the needy.
“Your kindness and generosity will enable 12 Jewish families who are struggling financially to purchase Passover foods required to celebrate a seder and to help them carry on the Jewish traditions that are so important to us all,” said Roz Antoun, director of Jewish Family Service.
Checks should be made out and sent to Jewish Family Service, 500 Clubhouse Rd., Vestal, NY 13850 with “JFS Passover donation” noted in the memo line. Donations must be received no later than Wednesday, March 21, so that Jewish Family Service will have time to process and distribute the funds.
“In these difficult economic times, the community’s generosity will surely brighten the celebration of Passover for the recipients and remind those families that they are being remembered,” said Antoun.
