Jewish Federation seeks donations

Seeing Eye

EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND: The Youngstown Area Jewish Federation serves the entire community, regardless of religious affiliation, at every stage of life, through its agencies: Heritage Manor Rehabilitation and Retirement Community, Jewish Community Center of Youngstown, Jewish Family Services, and Levy Gardens Assisted Living. The youngest members of the community are being taken care of in the JCC’s newly licensed Temporary Pandemic Child Care Center while their parents are serving on the frontlines of this battle. Wellness checks being made by JCC and Jewish Family Services staff and community volunteers, and calls coming into its newly created Jewish Federation & Community Hotline are connecting people with mental health services or simply providing a source of comfort during this time. Mobile meals are being provided for older adults who might not otherwise have food. Rainy day funds are being quickly depleted to respond to pleas for help from older adults and families looking to keep roofs over their heads, utilities paid, and food on the table. For that reason, the Federation launched the Emergency Relief Fund to help address the needs of the community and support its agencies as they continue to provide critical services. To make a tax-deductible donation visit jewishyoungstown.org/relief or send a check to: Youngstown Area Jewish Federation Emergency Relief Fund, Attn: Lisa Long, FRD Director, 505 Gypsy Lane, Youngstown, Ohio 44504
