With all the closures in Dallas and across the US, those who live paycheck-to-paycheck have even greater anxiety about what the next few months look like as a result of COVID-19. Many who work in the hardest hit industries will no longer have the funds to pay for their rent, utilities, food, medication, mental health care and other basic needs items. That’s where we come in as #someonetoleanon. With your help, Jewish Family Service (JFS Dallas) can keep the lights on for those who need it most… I hope you’ll join me in showing them our community is rallying behind them. Donate to my fundraiser here or online at www.jfsdallas.org/donate. Thank you for supporting JFS and being #someonetoleanon

Have you heard about the S.H.E.F. Emergency Assistance Fund available to hourly employees during COVID-19? Established by Janet and Jack Baum and John Nikolas, it is an effort to provide support to as many restaurant hourly workers as possible throughout North Texas. The S.H.E.F Fund, which stands for “Stacy’s Hourly Employee Fund” is named after Stacy Fussell, a longtime Woodlands American Grill employee who passed away recently. In addition to this financial support, JFS will be be providing case management assistance and connecting these workers to eligible benefits, employment opportunities, counseling and other resources as they navigate this crisis. Please consider donating to this fund to help those in need as fast as possible.
Be #someonetoleanon by donating at jfsdallas.org/donate and in the Additional Comments section type “S.H.E.F. Fund.” The donation is tax-deductible. If you know an hourly worker in the restaurant industry who is out of work, please have them call JFS at 972-437-9950 x 340 to apply for the funds.
