Supporting your JCC!

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

It’s that time again when we reflect on our accomplishments over the past year and highlight the many ways in which we have advanced our Jewish Community Center’s mission. As the nucleus of the Syracuse Jewish community, the JCC often transcends its mission by becoming a necessity in the lives of many in our community.

This past year we continued to support hundreds of local working families with quality childcare through our Early Childhood Development Program and After School Program. At the other end of the age spectrum, our support of area seniors remains stronger than ever. Our hot, nutritious and delicious senior kosher meals served up five days a week have developed quite a following. The JCC’s Neighborhood Advisor Program continues to grow and help more seniors remain living independently in the community. This year also was a milestone for our Family Sports & Fitness Center as we renovated many areas of our facility and replaced nearly all of our exercise equipment.

We’ve been able to achieve all of these things—and more—thanks to the wonderful support from our community, and the many dedicated members and donors like you. As we once again kick off another end-of-year campaign, we ask that you help us further our mission of providing quality programs and services rooted in Judaic traditions and teachings. Please remember that when you give to the JCC, you provide a gift that lasts throughout the year. Your generous donation will positively impact the lives of many Central New Yorkers, while also helping the JCC to maintain its key role in our community.

As we close out another successful year, help us continue our long tradition of serving the diverse needs of our friends and neighbors. Please make a tax-deductible contribution to the JCC today. Your end-of-year gift will help ensure that our essential programming and services continue moving forward throughout the coming year.
