Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County receives grant from Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund
JFCS is happy to announce that it has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Employee Giving Fund.
With this critical funding, JFCS is able to ensure that the economically disadvantaged families who use our food pantry have access to healthy foods on a regular basis. In addition, JFCS is able to continue to offer hunger education and advocacy programs to community members regarding food insecurity and resources to address this issue. JFCS will also engage community and corporate volunteers to participate in “Shop & Stock” activities to stock the pantry with healthy foods.
“By offsetting some of our families’ out-of-pocket costs for food from their limited household budgets, we are able to help them extend their budgets further.” said Lara Wellerstein, JFCS Director of Community Programs and Services.
“We are extremely grateful to partner with the Church & Dwight Employee Giving Fund. Our pantry brings a level of stability into the lives of our low-income clients. This award helps JFCS meet our goal of providing a healthy food pantry for the community.” said Michelle Napell, Executive Director of Jewish Family & Children’s Service.
