Sarah & Max Pechter Fund for Local Safety Net Services

More than ever, people are turning to Federation-supported programs and services for help. The vulnerable populations in our community have many unmet needs and rely on help enabled by Federation with its beneficiary agencies. They find sustenance on the shelves of the food pantry and in the hot meals delivered to their door. They find hope in the faces of volunteers, counselors and caring professionals who offer a helping hand in their hour of need. We reach out to the most vulnerable among us  –  to survivors of the Holocaust, to children with special needs and to families in painful transition. And, when the strong are weakened by an unforeseen crisis  –  by a natural disaster, the loss of a job or the even more devastating loss of a loved one  – we are there, because of gifts to the Annual Campaign.
