Today Joaquin Torres of Mr. Christopher Kresge’s class at Echo Lake Elementary presented JFS with a set of festive handmade greeting cards for the annual Evens Fund Thanksgiving gift card project.
This project is done in conjunction with donations from the Evens Food Fund via the Richmond Jewish Federation. The funds are used to buy grocery gift cards to help subsidize Holiday meals for JFS clients. Clients who receive the grocery store gift cards will also receive one of the 5th graders’ cards.
Special thank you to Jazmin Gatto de Torres, mother of Joaquin Torres and former JFS staff member, for organizing this project for the past five years.
