Tuesday, December 1st, is #GivingTuesday–an international day celebrating increased and more purposeful philanthropy during the holiday season. #GivingTuesday aims to inspire and encourage charitable giving during the holiday season, and share support for causes and organizations via social media.
We recently mailed our annual appeal to you, and we hope this special day of giving will encourage you to make your annual gift–or an extra show of support–to ensure we can continue helping individuals and families in need. Click here to support JF&CS and make a gift online, call us at 412.422.7200 or send your check made payable to “Jewish Family & Children’s Service” to: JF&CS, 5743 Bartlett Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.
This past year alone, JF&CS helped more than 10,000 people–and we couldn’t have done it without you. More people than ever are experiencing unemployment, hunger, caring for aging loved ones, financial crises and more, and are turning to JF&CS for the programs and services they need to manage life’s changes and challenges.
Giving thanks and giving back are important at this time of year. We know what it means to be grateful. We see gratitude reflected in the eyes of our clients and hear it in their voices. And we are grateful to you, our valued and generous supporters, for your contributions that allow us to continue our work.
At this time of reflecting on our blessings and giving thanks, we are grateful for our many community partners, funders and supporters who recognize the importance of our work and help us to continue to serve those who turn to us in times of need. Thank you to those who have chosen to partner with us in so many ways.
In this holiday spirit, we hope that part of your family discussion during Thanksgiving will be about the importance of supporting causes that are near and dear to your hearts. This time of year presents the ideal opportunity to make an annual gift, to honor loved ones by making tribute gifts or resolving to volunteer your time and talents. Because, as we all know, nothing feels better or shows your holiday spirit more than recognizing our blessings and giving back.
On behalf of the thousands of lives that have been changed because of your support, THANK YOU.
From our JF&CS family to yours, we wish you a bright and joyful Thanksgiving.
