Due to Covid-19, we had to cancel this year’s event. The loss is great, approximately $75,000. Every year, the Back to School program enables us to donate new school supplies, backpacks and gifts cards to the children we serve. Our Family Fun Center is our foundation headquarters. The Fun Center, is equipped with video games, arcade games, arts and crafts room and our wish room. We offer the children and their families free parties at no cost with pizza,cake, goody bags and lots of fun. The center is also home for all our collections, including our biggest one, our annual toy drive. Even though this is has hit us hard, we are currently helping children and their families daily. One way we are helping is by providing transportation to and from treatments, so the families can avoid taking public transportation.
Over the next few months, I will be trying to make up the funds the donations from cancellation of our events. I understand that this is a tough time for everyone but if you have the means to make a donation at this time that would be wonderful.
Donations can be made through our website, www.jtcf.org, Venmo @JTCFoundation or make checks payable to: JTCF 1881 Wantagh Avenue, Wantagh, NY 11793. All donations are tax-deductible.
The foundation is coming up on twenty nine years!! All this would not be possible without your support, thank you.
