Dear friend,

As part of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa's ongoing efforts to keep you informed on what your incredible generosity is accomplishing in our community, here is a Report from the Field from Jewish Family Services to explain how your gift to the Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience has helped our most vulnerable.
Your gift to the Jewish Federation's Emergency Campaign for Community Resilience ensured that Jewish Family Services was ready to provide additional and adapted supports to those who were hit hardest by COVID-19.  

When COVID first struck, those who were already isolated were most affected. Unable to go out for groceries, and with limited financial resources and family nearby, your gift to Federation enabled JFS to subsidize access to our Kosher Meals on Wheels program and provide much-needed and appreciated prepared meals delivered directly to our clients' doors.  

In addition, your generosity meant our staff was able to work remotely to provide virtual support to our clients. We could not have done this without the extra help. This allowed our staff to continue seamlessly providing support to the most vulnerable in our community. 

Together, we supported our community. And we can be proud of that. 

- Sarah Caspi, Executive Director, JFS
As you can see, you have made a real impact with your support of this important emergency campaign. This is what we can achieve when we work together, this is the power of the collective. Thank you for your generosity and care.
Warm regards,

Micah Garten
Director of Development
