THREE COMMUNITY AGENCIES PARTNER FOR THE BENEFIT OF JEWISH SENIORS IN NEED 
 
MERCER COUNTY, NJ, December 17, 2015 -- Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS) and Greenwood House are the grateful beneficiaries of a special emergency grant approved by the Board of Directors of The Federation of Princeton Mercer Bucks (Federation) earlier this week.

The one-time grant of $23,500 was awarded jointly to enable the two organizations to continue social and home care services to several home-bound, financially at-risk Jewish seniors.   JFCS and Greenwood House had been providing complementary social and healthcare services to this vulnerable population through United Way funding which unexpectedly ended. The financial infusion from Federation ensures a continuum of care – and peace of mind - through June 2016.

 “We are extremely grateful to the Federation supporters who make actions like this possible. It is a wonderful example of how together we impact the lives of our local Jewish community members in need,” said Mark Merkovitz, executive director of Federation. “I commend and thank the Board for their fast response in recognizing the value of the work provided by JFCS and Greenwood House.”

Legacy Gift Donors Honored at Greenwood House Shabbat
 
Ewing, NJ – On December 4, Greenwood House (GWH) hosted a special Legacy Shabbat Service led by Cantor David Wisnia in honor of those who have made legacy (promise) gifts to GWH. Nearly 50 people gathered at GWH’s “Abrams Assisted Living Residence” for the full Shabbat led by Cantor David Wisnia with accompaniment by his grandson Avi Wisnia. 
 
 “You have offered your future gifts in different ways – through bequests, gifts of life insurance and retirement plans, from charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. No matter the structure, each gift means that Greenwood House will have much needed resources to continue its mission of dignified and skilled care for our community members,” said Susan Falcon, board president.
