I don’t have to tell you we are now living through one of the most difficult periods of our history. With 4 in 10 Americans’ working lives disrupted by COVID-19, the number of people in our community who need assistance is only now beginning to be measured. That’s why I’m asking you, during this difficult time, to join me in supporting JVS SoCal as they mark their 90th Anniversary year.
JVS SoCal was founded in 1931 as a private, nonprofit organization in response to the crisis of the Great Depression. Since then, JVS SoCal has helped hundreds of thousands of men and women find and keep jobs that pay enough to support their families. In 2019 alone, JVS SoCal served 50,000 people in Southern California.
With help from friends like you, JVS SoCal provides education, training and support at no cost to those who need it most. These programs benefit single mothers, veterans, immigrants, young people, older workers–anyone facing a work or life crisis–to find a career and a pathway to regaining their self-worth.
Donations are urgently needed to ensure that JVS programs are available to the unprecedented number of Southern Californians who need its programs and services as the economic impact of the pandemic continues to linger. Please join us in our mission to put people back to work by making a tax-deductible contribution. If possible, please also consider fundraising on behalf of all the men and women who need our services more than ever. Together, we can change lives.
