The granting committee of The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee has approved emergency grants to eight community organizations totaling $68,929. These grants were provided as part of the organization’s first phase of Coronavirus support for Food Security and Health/Wellness needs.

Funds were provided to the following organizations: Aviva: A Campus for Jewish Life, Chabad of Bradenton, Chabad of Sarasota, Chabad of Venice, Congregation Kol Haneshama, Jewish Congregation of Venice, Temple Beth Israel and Temple Sinai. Needs ranged from providing “Shabbat in a Box” meals to families for spiritual and physical nourishment, delivering hot meals, groceries and emergency funding for homebound seniors, recently unemployed workers and health care workers, and providing personal protective equipment for staff.

Kim Adler, Chief Operating Officer, said the grants were a result of an outpouring of generosity from the local Jewish community to the Federation’s Stronger Together: Coronavirus Relief Fund. “We were thrilled by the community’s investment in our response and relief efforts. Hundreds of Jewish lives have been touched.”

More grants will be awarded for the operating needs of Jewish organizations. For more information, please contact Kim Adler at kadler@jfedsrq.org.
