Jewish Family Services of Greenwich (JFS) recently received a $2,000 competitive grant from Hudson City Savings Charitable Foundation.
This is the fifth grant JFS has received from the foundation and it will be used exclusively to help support the JFS Supermarketing for Seniors program.
Supermarketing for Seniors is a free grocery shopping and case management program that 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 independent lives in their own homes but were unable to do so without assistance in doing their shopping. Although it was started by and is run by Jewish Family Services of Greenwich, the program serves individuals of all backgrounds.
The only eligibility requirement is that a person be 60 years of age or older and live in Greenwich. There is no fee for this service.
If you are a home-bound senior, or know of one, who is unable to shop for him or herself, or you would like to volunteer to grocery shop for a Supermarketing for Seniors client, call JFS at 203-622-1881.
Supermarketing for Seniors is partially funded through the United Way of Greenwich and the town of Greenwich.
