Thank You for making Embrace-A-Family 2020 a Success

Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFS SV) had made

the winter holidays brighter for those in need through our

13th annual Embrace-A-Family program.

Thanks to your generosity we were able to help our clients

receive needed items and gifts for the holidays.  The program

was for sure different this year, in ways that none of us would

have anticipated prior to the pandemic, yet the generosity of

our community was strong. 

Our clients are extremely grateful for the gifts they received.

A single mom was so grateful for the gifts she received for her family and said:

"Thank you all for doing this wonderful service for those of us who cannot afford Chanukah gifts this year. The presents are wonderful – everything I asked for and more. I never dreamed that so many generous people would take our family under their wings. Chag sameach and hopes for a good new year."


A father of 5 who arrived from Ethiopia and now is an essential worker wrote:

"We have received all the gift items we requested.  We are very grateful to all of you, for your kindness and generosity. We are pleased and excited to have you all in our lives. We are learning, generously provided with food supplies and home utilities."


A huge thanks to our valued community partners who supported this program.
