KJFS receives award from Southern Maine Giving Group

Feb. 5th, 2019

Last night at their Annual Auction & Meeting, Southern Maine group 100 Women Who Care voted to award Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services approx. $13,000!

The group of 100+ women (actually closer to 250 women at this point) meets four times per year, and members agree to give $50 each per meeting. The group has individual members present on their favorite cause/charity at each meeting and then votes on the recipient of the award.

We are so proud and honored to be the most recent award recipient, and would like to thank JCA member Sue Goldsmith for presenting on behalf of the Jewish Community Alliance and KJFS.

“The importance of the diaper bank is so clear when you see how grateful people are to get the diapers.”

On representing KJFS at the meeting, Goldsmith said, “I decided to represent the charity after I started volunteering at KJFS and saw the need. The importance of the diaper bank is so clear when you see how grateful people are to get the diapers.”

Going into her presentation last night, Goldsmith said she felt good about her chances.

“I was pretty confident about KJFS and what we are doing, and I think that showed at the meeting based on the results. KFJS’s diaper bank is a unique program, the only one in the area, and since we are funded primarily by donations/grants, I just thought it was a perfect candidate for the award.”

Thank you so much once again to Sue and 100 Women Who Care for this incredibly kind and generous donation to KJFS!!
