JFS Orlando kicks off 5780 High Holiday Food Drive


September 20, 2019

L'shana Tova! The Jewish Family Services' High Holiday Food Drive is here once again (Sept. 15-Oct. 31, 2019). This new year, better your community and celebrate your tzedakah by feeding the hungry in Central Florida through JFS Orlando's Pearlman Emergency Food Pantry. Last year, the High Holiday Food Drive collected more than 6,300 lbs. of food and $4,000. That's enough donations to provide almost 3,000 meals to the hungry.

To participate, simply pick-up some of the non-perishable food items below and drop them off at JFS Orlando or a participating synagogue, Jewish agency, or community partner. Examples of food items include pasta, soup, canned fruit, peanut butter, cereal, canned vegetables, snack items, tuna.

Boost your mitzvah and make a monetary donation to JFS Orlando in our continued responsibility to individuals and families in need.

Donations can be dropped-off or sent to JFS Orlando, The George & Madeline Wolly Center, 2100 Lee Road Winter Park, FL 32789, or made online at http://www.JFSorlando.org/Give. Thank you for participating and joining the fight against hunger in Central Florida!
