Out of an abundance of caution, and with sincere concern for all members of our community, the leadership of Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFS SV) made the difficult choice to postpone the Good Morning JFS! fundraising breakfast on March 18th. This decision conforms with the Santa Clara County Health Department’s guidance to postpone, or cancel, mass gatherings and large community events due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). We hope to reschedule the event for some time in the fall.
While we are postponing the event, we cannot postpone the significant needs of the people who rely on our agency: Holocaust survivors and isolated elderly, community members requiring emergency food assistance, families needing counseling support, immigrants and refugees, and others who rely on JFS SV for ongoing assistance.
If you were planning to make a donation, what do you do now?
A special part of every Good Morning JFS! breakfast is raising funds through our Challenge Match. Once again, we are pleased to announce The Sobrato Family Foundation has provided $36,000 for this year’s match toward our goal of $187,000.
This is why we are asking you to immediately pledge your support (with no expectation of a further commitment at the fall event). To provide your support, you may:
We were hoping to present our story at Good Morning JFS! but that will have to wait.
We thank you for your continued support of Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley. See you in the fall!
P.S. Thank you to all our Good Morning JFS! sponsors.
