As Jewish Family Service of Atlantic and Cape May Counties (JFS) enters the new year, we are pleased to announce a host of legacy fundraisers to generate income to benefit the programs and services of the agency.

In total, JFS hopes to raise approximately $200,000 through the events for essential community services.

With the ongoing pandemic continuing to affect individuals and families, especially in Atlantic County, we need to ensure that the appropriate funds are raised, so that we can help community residents in need. .

The second annual Blue Flamingo Flocking fundraiser continues through February 28.

This program offers fans the opportunity to gather a friend, family member or neighbor for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion with a host of these brightly colored beauties.

Flamingo migration territories include Absecon, Atlantic City, Brigantine, Downbeach, Egg Harbor Township, Galloway, Linwood, Mays Landing, Northfield, and Somers Point.

Flamingos nest in the yard for up to 48 hours.

Prices start at $50 per flocking and additional charges apply for flocks larger than 20 flamingos.

“At JFS, we are looking forward to hosting several fundraising events this year. While some may look and feel slightly different, the premise of providing fun and memorable experiences is our goal for every program,” said Andrea Steinberg, CEO of JFS. “Over the past two years, JFS has seen a dramatic increase in needed services, including counseling and therapy, pantry and homeless support. These fundraising events are imperative in order to raise the necessary funds to support all of our services and programs.

In addition to our fundraising events, the agency continues to raise much-needed funds through our Friends direct mail campaign as well as advertising opportunities in the agency newsletter, which is sent twice a year to more than 16,000 homes and businesses.
