JFS Challenge surpasses goal

 


Thanks to the community’s generous contributions, Jewish Family Services of Greater Orlando collected $18,742 and 4,930 lbs. of food in this year’s Restock Challenge. With every $1 and pound of food matched $0.50 by The Weiner Family and The Winter Park Wealth Group, JFS surpassed their $10,000 match goal and therefore raised a grand total of $28,742.

Although due to COVID-19 JFS could no longer collect food donations two weeks into the drive, donors “stepped up to the challenge” by giving monetary donations. These donations made a big impact as they could allow JFS to buy $6 worth of food for every $1 at Second Harvest Food Bank. That means that $28,742 actually translates to an impact of $172,452 worth of food purchasing power.

JFS Orlando would like to give a special thanks to their match sponsors, The Weiner Family and The Winter Park Wealth Group, as well as their community partners.
