Margate — As Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) embraces the new year, we are pleased to announce a host of legacy fundraisers and new events to raise revenue to support the needs of our community residents. In total, JFS hopes to raise approximately $200,000 from the events for critical community services. With the pandemic continuing to affect individuals and families, especially in Atlantic County, one of the hardest hit areas in the nation, we need to assure appropriate funds are raised, so we can help those in need.
The Blue Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser continues through January 31. This program offers supporters the opportunity to flock a friend, family member or neighbor for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion with a bevy of beauties. Flamingo migration territories include Downbeach, Atlantic City, Somers Point, Linwood, Northfield, Egg Harbor Township, Absecon and Brigantine. Pricing starts at $50 per flocking and additional fees apply for larger flocks (more than 20 flamingos), insurance or extended delivery in Mays Landing and Galloway.
“At JFS, we look forward to hosting our annual fundraising events this year. While some may look and feel slightly different, the premise of offering fun and memorable experiences is still our focus for every program,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer. “With a drastic increase in services such as counseling, meal delivery, food pantry and homeless support, JFS has adapted to offer interactive events and digital fundraisers to raise necessary dollars to support programming.”
