YOU ADDWARMTH

ur Senior Adult program would not be what it is

without the ongoing support of our donors and

dedicated volunteers who spend hours each week

enhancing the lives of our seniors. Our volunteers greet

our seniors when they arrive at the JCC, help them get

situated, serve them meals and spend time talking with

and making them feel at home. Without our volunteers,

we truly could not offer such a robust program!

This amazing commitment to our seniors does not stop

there. This year at our popular Senior/Adult Child Brunch,

we got a great surprise! Howard Cohen, son of senior

participant Helen Cohen, and his wife Sylvia put the

wheels in motion to add a fourth day to our three-day-a-

week senior program. Helen, of blessed memory, was a

regular at our JCC. Howard and Sylvia were so grateful

for the role our Senior Adult Program played in her

life and shared the view that the program should be

expanded to a fourth day. As a result of their concerted

fundraising effort and the generosity of six other families,

our program now boasts a fourth day!

This spring we also secured a grant from the Grotta Fund

which enabled us to partner with Jewish Family Services

and bring a social worker to the JCC on a weekly basis.

This is so very important as seniors wrestle with health,

living, relationships and so many other issues.

We continue to be thankful for all the other donors and

grants which support our program: The Union County

Division on Aging, The Plainfield Foundation, The

Westfield Foundation, Westfield United Fund, The Van

Winkle Foundation and a variety of other corporate and

family sponsors.
