Jewish Care's Rosh Hashanah Appeal 2021
As we enter a New Year, please help us continue to support more people like Violet. We couldn’t do it without you.
Violet is 89 years young. Like over 90% of our community centre members, she lives on her own. But she’s not alone. During the pandemic, Violet was supported by Jewish Care to get online and join different discussion groups and events over Zoom, so she could catch up with old friends and make many new ones. It has been her highlight week after week.
A few months ago, Violet along with all our other community service members received a letter to let them know that our services will be reopening as soon as it’s safe to do so. Violet has even picked out her outfit in anticipation!So, whilst we are continuing to support the community through our virtual programmes, Meals on Wheels and befriending service, we can’t wait to welcome back Violet and thousands of others in our community who both deeply rely on them – and miss them – back to our services. But we can’t do it without your help.
The running of our services comes at a cost. We rely on generous people like you to ensure we can provide all our vital services and bring sweetness and joy to more people like Violet this Rosh Hashanah.
