What Are You Thankful For?

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Thanksgiving is a time where we all count our blessings and think about what we're grateful for. And now we have a way for you to express your gratitude while helping others in the community by making a tribute gift to JFS. 

The Hebrew term for gratitude is hikarat hatov, which means "recognizing the good." Share your gratitude and recognize the good things in your life today with a tribute gift to JFS by contacting Jari Thymian at (303) 597.5000 x386 or donating online.

Even Oprah's celebrating gratitude! Check out her World of Gratitude!

Please leave comments about what you are thankful for this year. Happy Thanksgiving!

Students Learn About Giving Back!

Friday, November 19, 2010

Students from Temple Sinai Preschool and Kindergarten and Stanley British Primary School, learned what it means to give back this week.

Temple Sinai held their 2nd annual Thanksgiving food drive for the JFS Weinberg Food Pantry. Each class collected a different item from a list of traditional holiday foods we requested - 530 pounds all together. Then the kindergarten teachers taught the kids who the food was helping and turned it into a math lesson by counting and sorting the items the whole school collected. When Chad Livermore, Food Pantry Operations Coordinator, went to pick up the food, the kids helped him load the food into bins and got to check out the cool Pantry truck!

Third, fourth, and fifth graders from Stanley British Primary School came to JFS on Wednesday to learn more about the agency and tour the Food Pantry. They bagged rice for the Pantry clients and made beautiful cards to be distributed with the Thanksgiving baskets next week. The group was very enthusiastic and enjoyed learning about how the Pantry operates, such as the fact that we do not charge clients for their food and where donations come from.

Thank you so much to all the students and teachers at Temple Sinai and Stanley British Primary for giving families something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
