A warm, heartfelt THANK YOU to the Park City Community Foundation and their program Live PC Give PC! On Friday, November 8, 2013 the Park City community responded overwhelmingly to the one-day online charitable campaign, and raised $832,117 from 2,629 donors to benefit the many non-profit organizations based in and with on-going operations in Park City! We appreciate the generous donors who participated to support Jewish Family Service's Park City office. JFS’s reach to those throughout Summit and Wasatch Counties includes hosting the weekly Park City Career Network, offering networking, job skills and emotional support to those impacted by the recession and seeking employment, in addition to our partnership with Peace House in Park City, where JFS provides clinical assessments and on-going mental health counseling by a bi-lingual licensed therapist for victims of domestic violence. JFS counselors see people by referral on site at The People's Health Clinic in Park City. Again, THANK YOU!!
The sixth annual Jewish Family Service Tribute Dinner was held on October 27, 2013, where JFS and the community celebrated three "Inspiring Women" - Suzanne Goldsmith, Joanne McGillis, and Irene Tannenbaum - for lifetimes of good deeds to the Jewish as well as general communities in Utah. Please see local media coverage of the event: KSL Channel 5 News, Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News. JFS extends a hearty THANK YOU to ALL who supported the event! We are extremely grateful to our corporate and table sponsors, and those who gave time and talent to help us host our biggest crowd ever! We are very pleased to announce we met our challenge grant, and our heartfelt gratitude goes to the two generous donors of the $25,000 challenge grant who doubled the value of everyone's contribution towards the evening's festivities! The JFS Tribute Dinner raises vital funds to help people of all faiths throughout Salt Lake, Summit and Wasatch Counties so JFS can supply food for the hungry, teach job search skills and offer emotional support to the unemployed, counsel the depressed, offer resources to keep marriages and families together, and respite to those caring for loved ones.
