Robert Weinroth

To 500 + Client Households

Boca Raton, FL – This past Sunday, over 100 volunteer teams helped our  neighbors in need celebrate Passover by delivering Passover groceries to JFS client households  in the Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach areas. Over 500 households, out of a total  of 1,100, received their packages today. The remaining clients will receive their packages  throughout this week. 

Groceries included in the package featured many Passover staples like: Matzah, Potato Pancake  Mix, Matzo Ball Mix, Chicken Broth, Gefilte Fish and more. Humana donated cleaning supplies  (paper towels, spray cleanser and dish soap) to help client get their homes ready for the  holiday. Besides the groceries and cleaning supplies, each package contained a personal touch,  several handmade greeting cards, created by hundreds of area families, wishing JFS clients a  Happy Passover. 

Danielle Hartman, JFS President & CEO stated, “Once again we are overwhelmingly grateful to  the many volunteer who spent their Sunday with us delivery Passover packages so that our  seniors would not be forgotten. Without the generosity of our community, the holiday of  Passover would not be as enjoyable as we spend our second year celebrating separately. The  pandemic has shown us how deeply our community cares for each other, and I hope this trend  continues as we begin to transition into the next phase of this difficult time.” 

Passover begins at sundown this coming Saturday evening, March 27th
