BJH Foundation Grant Organizations Helping Those in Need
Fall is in the air, temperatures are starting to drop and leaves are turning to autumn colors. At least many hope this is true after the extended summer weather this year.
Most of us realize there is a great deal to be thankful for in our lives. Our neighboring communities are questioning this after suffering one of the most devastating weather events the Carolinas have experienced in decades.
North and South Carolina suffered as a result of Hurricane Florence. The coastal communities have been damaged beyond belief leaving many in temporary living situations for extended periods of time while their communities are repaired. This included a number of Jewish residents living in rural areas away from the Jewish community.
Acts of Tikkun Olam are just one reason BJH Foundation recognizes organizations worthy of grants. Jewish Family Services of Greensboro, Jewish Family Services of Raleigh-Cary and other volunteers from the Jewish communities will travel to Eastern North Carolina, roll up their sleeves to help clean up and repair some of the homes, particularly those inhabited by Jewish adults.
Helping create collaboration among grant recipient organizations is a goal of BJH Foundation. The organizations provide different programs and services to their community. Sharing information and experiences with each other helps create better service to the Jewish adult population.
BJH Foundation awards grants for programs connecting Jewish adults, some with varying degrees of mental and or physical health issues, to needed life improving services in North and South Carolina.
