Update on Giving Circle family

UPDATE ON SOMERSET BRANDEIS’S SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE’S

GIVING CIRCLE FAMILY

Our fall donations to our new Giving Circle family were delivered in two parts: before
school opened and after our October 15 “closing date.” All were received with much
appreciation. The clothing for the boys were a perfect fit. Following the delivery of the
early fall donations to facilitate “back to school needs” we received a warm “thank
you” letter from our family’s JFS social worker. (The letter has been edited to protect
the confidentiality of the family):

Dear Members of Brandeis National Committee, Somerset Chapter:
I wanted to express the deep gratitude we are feeling here at Jewish Family Service when you found
it in your heart to be a Giving Circle for M… and her family. M—— was so grateful when K—— (her
JFS family mentor), delivered your gifts to her. She received 3 bags of clothing and other donations.
She was able to provide her children with all the necessary school supplies.
M—— wasn’t able to write a card herself but asked us multiple times to send you pictures of the
boys’ first day of school. She was so thankful for your generous giving. M— and K—— have been
focusing their time ensuring that her boys are starting off in the right direction for them to have a
successful school year. With your help, they have new backpacks and they are ready to learn!
Warm Regards,
Young-In Shin, LSW
Family Mentor Program Coordinator
