Jewish Family Services Receives Grant from Rotary Club of Indianapolis
Indianapolis, IN (December 1, 2015) – Jewish Family Services is pleased to announce it has received a $15,000 grant from the Rotary Club of Indianapolis. These funds will support the Libby Fogle Lunch Bunch.
The Libby Fogle Lunch Bunch is a congregate lunch program that seeks to reduce food insecurity and social isolation in older adults. Held twice weekly, the program served over 3,100 meals in 2014 and is on pace to exceed that number in 2015. In addition to receiving a hot kosher meal, participants engage in arts and cultural programming. Programs and activities are designed to encourage residents to expand their social support network, develop new or nurture existing friendships, and explore cultural and entertainment venues in the Indianapolis area.
Lori Moss, Executive Director at Jewish Family Services said, “We are so appreciative of the Indianapolis Rotary Foundation for their support and confidence in our program. Programming for older adults is often neglected in the philanthropic world, and this gift demonstrates the Indianapolis Rotary Foundation’s commitment to lifting up individuals in our city throughout all the stages of life and helps enrich Indianapolis as a city where older adults can age with dignity.”
The Indianapolis Rotary Foundation awards annual Community Grants through a competitive application and review process. The Indianapolis Rotary Foundation is a private, stand-alone corporation that serves as the primary community charitable arm of the Rotary Club of Indianapolis.
