Supporting Vulnerable Community Members
Based on feedback from teens and community partners, we are excited to partner again with Jewish Family Services of Metrowest, with support from CJP and the Shapiro Foundation, to offer this opportunity for Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) in our Metrowest communities for a second year!
Together we will serve the families and children who attend the Woodrow Wilson School in Framingham. Statistically, the Wilson School reports having a student population that is 80% immigrant with another 80% of the student body qualifying for free and reduced meals. In spite of some of the challenges the student body faces, a school is a place of hope and joy, where children can learn and feel safe.
JFS routinely serves the school and we are delighted that our efforts on October 27th will help support and encourage the students, families, teachers, and staff that call the school their own.
Mark your calendar, text some friends and get signed up for this high-impact event!
