Back to School Bash slated for JFCS

Jewish Family & Career Services will hold its Second Annual Back to School Bash Thursday, August 10, at the JFCS.

Last year, 150 students, grades K-12, came to JFCS’ pop-up store to select school supplies.

According to Deloitte’s Back to School Survey for 2016, parents needed to spend $360 just for school supplies and required clothing and expect to pay even more this year. For low-income and refugee families, this is nearly an impossible task without the support from organizations such as JFCS.

JFCS is looking for donations of new school supplies for any age to be donated. Donations may be dropped at JFCS through the first week of August. Contact Lisa Sobel-Berlow at or 502-452-6341 ext. 116 for more information.
