This Good Deeds Week, we are also supporting clients of the Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse (JCADA) by collecting gift cards. JCADA empowers all survivors of intimate partner violence to live safely by providing FREE counseling, victim advocacy and legal services. JCADA also educates youth and adults about the dynamics of healthy relationships through interactive workshops and presentations. Gift cards will be given directly to survivors of intimate partner violence to help them meet their basic needs. Grocery, gas, and general stores such as Target, Walmart, and Amazon are most needed.  Click here to donate online today!
