Since 2014 I have participated in the JCS Alliance Team Blue Card campaign by running in the Miami Marathon (actually walking in the Half Marathon) raising funds for needy Holocaust Survivors. Each year I dedicate this walk and fundraising campaign to my parents who are both Holocaust Survivors. I am walking in memory of Marcia Mell Sachs and in honor of Israel Joe Sachs.
The Blue Card’s mission is to aid Holocaust Survivors by providing both long-term ongoing support and emergency grants for basic human needs in the most caring way. Financial support is given either directly to the client or through agencies such as JCS. Grants are provided for food, health care, psychotherapy, prescription drugs, personal emergency response system, housing, transportation and various one-time emergencies.
Join us. Support the team. Make a real difference in their lives. For additional information, contact Marian at Mmendelsohn@jcsfl.org.
Thank you - Helen
