Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles

How to Give - Gift Card Program

For over 25 years, JFS’ Adopt-a-Family program has provided holiday gifts to children and families, as well as older adults who cannot afford to purchase gifts for their loved ones during the winter holiday season. Thanks to your past generous support, we were able to help over 600 families and individuals procure holidays gifts last year alone. The joy you provided is immeasurable. 

We understand that the people we serve are in need throughout the year, and that holiday gifts represent only a small percentage of the needs they face. 

It is for this reason that we are changing our program into a year-round relief fund that provides support to people in need at their time of need.

JFS is at the frontlines every day, working hand-in-hand with individuals and families to address their specific and nuanced circumstances. Having a relief fund that allows us to purchase gift cards as needed – for any situation that emerges at any time throughout the year – will allow us to provide the joy and relief that we currently provide during the holiday season. 

We hope you will continue to support our gift card program by making a meaningful contribution that helps families in crisis not just during the holidays, but every day. Your generous commitment has fostered real positive change in our community – and now, you can do so much more throughout the year. 

To participate, or if you have any questions, please contact Jasmine Lopez at (213) 260-7926 or via email at
