JFS SV's 2019 Back-to-School Drive
July 1st thru July 31st
Please join us by supporting Equipped To Learn – the JFS SV Back-to-School Drive. This year we are expanding the drive to include gift cards for back-to=school shoes and clothing. It makes a world of difference for a needy student to have back-to-school supplies and be ready to learn.
Is there a stronger memory than that first day of school feeling with fresh
notebooks, sharpened pencils, good solid erasers, nice clothes and new shoes?
With your help, our children and youth will be off to a great start to a
successful 2019 school year!
You can help JFS SV clients, ranging in ages from pre-schoolers
through young adult learners, be better prepared for back-to-school
and ready to learn.
In this third year effort, our aim is to help even more children and
families than before, expanding the drive to offer shoe gift cards.
Our goal this year is to deliver full backpacks and shoes for as many as 150 students. The backpacks and shoe gift cards will go to students of all ages from families that are economically struggling, allowing those families reduce this burden from their limited resources.
There are multiple ways in which you can get involved this year:
1) Click on any or all of the suggested supplies lists below for each age group. Just print out one or more of the wish list tags and go out shopping! Remember, we need backpacks for all age groups. Deliver your purchases to JFS offices at the Levy Family Campus in Los Gatos.
$50 Gift Card from DSW or Target for Back-to-School Shoes
2) Pick up a gift idea tag at various stations throughout the
Levy Family Campus (thanks to our APJCC friends), or at one of
our community partner locations:
Congregation Beth David
Temple Beth Torah
3) You can purchase school supplies and/or gift cards online via Target.com and have them sent directly to JFS. Just click on Target Online for JFS SV Back-to-School.
If you purchase a Target, Kohls or DSW Gift Card and wish to email it to JFS, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
