Jewish Family Services Food Pantry

Jewish Family Service is committed to alleviating hunger in our community. Please join us in our efforts to accomplish this. Thank you to everyone who has so generously contributed to our food pantry with nonperishable items or financial support.

We are supported in the Lehigh Valley by Second Harvest, as well as by the contributions of food drives and individuals. We are looking to expand into the entire Lehigh Valley to our Jewish community, and we ask for your support. If you have non-perishable items to donate, please either drop them at JFS or call and we will pick them up.

Financial donations can be sent directly to JFS. In our outreach, we need everyone to spread the word. If you know someone, either affiliated or not, who could benefit from any JFS service, tell them about us and have them call. JFS maintains confidentiality and professionalism. We will deliver emergency food packages or supplemental food boxes anywhere in the Lehigh Valley. In addition to providing food, our Benefits Checkup Program (BCU) is designed to assist low-income persons of retirement age and younger adults with disabilities to find and apply for federal, state and local benefits. JFS seeks to help individuals and families live healthier, more stable lives by providing professional counseling, education and community programs.

JFS would love to assist you in scheduling a food drive or creating a project that can help benefit persons in need. Please call JFS at (610) 821-8722 or go on our website for further information.

BAS Fundraiser: “Buy Local” Campaign

We will be soliciting local small businesses to give Bnai Abraham a small percentage of the sales from Synagogue members who identify themselves as such at the time of purchase. We will list all participating merchants in the Bulletin on a tear-out card which you can carry in your wallet as a reminder.

According to ‘Buy Local Philly’, three times as much money stays in the local economy when you buy goods and services from locally owned businesses instead of large chains. This campaign can definitely spread some goodwill from our Bnai community to the heart of the area business community.

If you know of any business that would or should participate, please contact Judy Walker at judithwlkr@gmail.com. We will have a soliciting team armed with information and a letter from the Synagogue.
