Staten Island residents Pedro and Jennifer K. were left destitute when their home was literally pushed 500 feet into a neighboring marsh. Pedro, an Iraq War veteran, was able to get his wife and young children to safety before Sandy hit but rode out the storm at a neighbor's house. JBFCS funds were able to help this family find safety, food, and shelter.

Contributing to this fund will give help to both clients and staff who are in need of money so that we can get what's needed.
