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!
Thank you to our 4th Day Founding Families!

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
