Looking forward to the future

Friends and benefactors of Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) gathered at the Prime Osborn Convention Center April 26 to celebrate the mission of “Heroes Among Us: Looking Forward to the Future,” co-chaired by Debra Pataky and Tammy Shumer.

Honoreees included “the JFCS Faces of the Future,” Faye Hedrick, Tmima Neihaus, Alicia Rauchwarger, Lauren Rickoff, Rachel Sandler and Lauren Setzer on the PJ Library Steering Committee, and Heroes staff Sersie Blue, Bernardo Cuadra, Jessica Grady, Tierra Holsey, Whitney Kuvin and LaTonya Waterman.

Hope, strength and generosity are hallmarks of the nonprofit which celebrated more than a century of community service assisting people in need with food and emergency shelter since 1917.

“At Jewish Family & Community Services, we are dedicated to helping people help themselves – no matter their religion, race or background. This event celebrates the incredible heroes among us who make our work possible in the community, from donors to staff members to the clients themselves. It is an honor to provide our services to the community, and we look forward to the next century of service here in Jacksonville,” said Colleen Rodriquez, CEO.
