Fall/winter needs for the Giving Circle Project

FALL/WINTER 2018 NEEDS FOR THE SOMERSET BRANDEIS’S SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE’S  JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE’S GIVING CIRCLE PROJECT

Following the success of our first Jewish Family Service (JFS) Giving Circle project, the Somerset Brandeis National Committee Board of Directors (BoD) has approved our continued partnering with the JFS of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties. As part of our Social Action Mandate we will help support a new family through JFS’s Giving Circle Program.

IMAGINE:
A single mother of three coping with the ravages of Multiple Sclerosis. Diagnosed five years ago, Mom’s deteriorating health now involves speaking, walking, and vision. This fall, her daughter, age 17, will be a high school senior, and her two sons, ages 7 and 8, will enter second and third grades, respectively. Following their move last year from Trenton to Skillman, the transition has been difficult for the boys academically as the new school district’s curriculum proved challenging.
Nevertheless, the family is determined to give the boys the best support possible for them to thrive in their elementary education. They are both very active and love to learn about history and science. The boys love to play soccer, basketball, and football. Mom has expressed particular concern that she can’t meet all the boys’ needs because of their rapid growth.

Here is the Fall/Winter Wish List for our JFS’s Giving Circle family along with delivery instructions and financial donation options which must adhere to Brandeis National Committee regulations.
