The Real Need Annual Campaign

JF&CS Real Need Annual Campaign

Critical support is needed to help many in the Atlanta area

JF&CS is dedicated to strengthening and enriching the lives of individuals, families and community, both Jewish and non-Jewish, and helping them meet the challenges of daily life—challenges that have been exacerbated by the recent pandemic.

Since Covid-19, JF&CS has transformed to meet the needs of our community, providing emergency financial assistance, contactless pick-up and delivery from our food pantry, thousands of telehealth counseling sessions, free support groups, and parenting resources. We have also adapted our in-person friendly visitor program to provide weekly reassurance calls to isolated older adults.

According to JF&CS CEO Terri Bonoff, there has never been a more urgent time for JF&CS to launch the annual campaign. In order to continue to meet the ever-growing needs of our community, the annual campaign has to raise more money than ever before.

“Now, more than ever, JF&CS is positioned to help our community cope during this time of uncertainty and overcome this crisis.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic hit, and we saw what real need looks like. People are calling us for help with food, rent, mental health support,” said Bonoff, noting that over the last four months, JF&CS has provided more than $500,000 in financial assistance, and 77,500 pounds of food to the Atlanta community, reaching people in 56 zip codes. We are more committed than ever to meeting the needs of real people with real need – today and for many months to come.”

With deep roots in the community, JF&CS was able to pivot quickly to help our community, but the need is greater than ever before, and our capacity relies on supporters like you.
