JFS receives grant to help seniors stay independent

Jewish Family Services of Greenwich (JFS) has received a $4,000 grant from First County Bank Foundation. It is the sixth such grant presented to JFS by the Foundation to be used exclusively to support the agency’s Supermarketing for Seniors (SFS) program.

Funded in part by the United Way of Greenwich and the Town of Greenwich, Supermarketing for Seniors is a free grocery shopping and case management program 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. The program serves individuals of all backgrounds who are 60 years or older and live in the town of Greenwich.

To volunteer or to register for the Supermarketing for Seniors program, call (203) 622-1881.
