Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Greenwich may be celebrating its 30th anniversary this year but it’s the town who will get receive a gift.

In honor of its milestone, JFS purchased a town bench with a plaque that reads, “Jewish Family Services of Greenwich Celebrating 30 Years of Community Service 1983-2013.” The gift will be dedicated to the town on Sept. 25 at 11 a.m.

On hand at the event will be First Selectman Peter Tesei, along with individuals who have benefited from JFS services, participants of the Greenwich Senior Center, agents from various social service agencies, as well as JFS board members and community residents.

Set in front of the Greenwich Senior Center, the bench is representative of the 1,700 persons annually assisted by JFS, 75% of whom are over the age of 60. The public is welcome to attend.
