Valley Gives Day 5.2.17

Every year, we participate in Valley Gives Day- a one-day online giving event in the Pioneer Valley as a way to engage new friends and donors. We hope you share your passion for our cause with your friends and encourage them to give to JFS on Valley Gives Day. This year, (as part of our spring fundraising campaign to raise $75,000) we are focusing on our New American Program that helps resettle and provides ongoing services to refugees in Western MA. Here's the link to our Valley Gives donation page. With your support, we can give hundreds of women, men, and children the promise of a new life. Thank you!
