Joe Bornstein Winter Warmth Drive Logo 6

The JCA & KJFS are proud to report on the first year of our new Joe Bornstein Winter Warmth Drive. Thank you so much to our incredible community. You made this possible!

A message from the Bornstein Family:

The family of Joe Bornstein would like to thank the community for the overwhelming and generous support of the first annual Joe Bornstein Winter Warmth Drive.

Thanks to community contributions, the fundraiser collected and donated nearly 500 pairs of boots to local schools to ensure children have weather-appropriate clothing as we head into a cold Maine winter.

Boots were delivered to students at the Gerald E. Talbot Community School, Reiche Community School, Ocean Avenue Elementary School, and King Middle School in Portland, as well as Canal Elementary School and Westbrook Middle School.

As teachers work to provide greater access to outdoor learning, we're so proud to help students focus on their education – and know Joe is smiling down at the community love.

Special thanks to the JCA’s Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services (KJFS) for coordinating the fundraiser and for their steadfast commitment to our community.

With love,
The Bornstein and Bergeron families
