Greenwich JFS receives grant to help seniors

GREENWICH — Jewish Family Services of Greenwich (JFS) is the recipient of a $4,000 grant from the First County Bank Foundation. The grant is the sixth awarded by the bank to JFS to be used exclusively to help support our Supermarketing for Seniors (SFS) program.

A free grocery shopping and case management program, Supermarketing for Seniors was established in 1986 in response to the needs of a growing number of frail and elderly Greenwich residents who wanted to continue to live quality, independent lives in their own homes but were unable to do so without assistance in doing their marketing. People of all backgrounds who are 60 years or older and live in the Town of Greenwich are eligible to take part in the program.

To find out more about participating in the program either as a recipient of the service or a volunteer, call (203) 622-1881.

CAP: JFS Executive Director Lisa Loraine Smith (second from left) and Elyse Brown, Supermarkting for Seniors program director, accept the the $4,000 check from Jeffrey Robinson, assistant vice president, First County Bank Greenwich (left), and Jagjiwan Singh, assistant VP, Business Development Officer, First County Bank.

And the winner is…
Orange is the new Thanksgiving
Catch a Rising Star!
