We can still use your help!

Our Beat the Virus campaign has touched a lot of lives. We’ve provided somewhere in the vicinity of 2500 meals which seems like a lot of families, doesn’t it? In truth, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to how many families are in need of help while weathering the coronavirus. With about ten days remaining in our winter campaign, we’re hoping that, if you are able, you’ll donate generously. We’re going to send grants to as many states across America as we can.

Because of your caring, we’ve been able to make these six grants:

  • Feeding New York State, helping the food banks of New York State ensure that every person in every community across New York State has access to good, healthy food.
  • Food Bank of Iowa, providing food for Iowa children, families and seniors, and striving to fulfill a vision of a hunger-free Iowa.
  • Community Emergency Relief Volunteers, helping families in the local community of Northfield, Vermont, to put food on their tables during the pandemic.
  • The Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund of the First Nations Development Institute, which is helping Native American families in California, New Mexico, the Pacific Northwest, New York, Navajo Nation, Hopi Tribe and other Covid-19 hotspots, to get through these difficult times.
  • The Pico Union Project in Los Angeles, which is distributing free fresh produce, children’s books and household supplies every week to 2000 neighborhood families in the area known as El Pueblo de Los Ángeles.
  • Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, whose mission is, “We exist simply because people in our community struggle with meeting a basic human need—having enough to eat.” During the pandemic, that need has increased exponentially.

If you’ll keep donating to our Beat the Virus Fund, we’ll continue identifying and providing grants to local food pantries and other community services that are helping assist folks who need a helping hand.

If you prefer, your donations are always welcome to the Arts FundSocial Justice Fund, and Jewish Life Fund.

We continue to miss Jonah and to feel grateful that we had him in our lives and that he’s inspired us to do good stuff in his name. The Jonah Maccabee Foundation has promised to honor Jonah’s life by “turning love into action.” We are humbled to be your partner in working for sustained meaningful change in our society.

Thank you for supporting our Beat the Virus campaign.

Very sincerely,
Ellen, Billy, Aiden, Katie and Mark
The Jonah Maccabee Foundation
