Jewish group seeking donations for needy

Citizen Staff Writer

The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona is creating an emergency assistance fund to help people here with food, clothing, housing and utility payments in the economic downturn.

Jewish Family & Children’s Service, a nonsectarian federation social service agencies, “has seen a dramatic rise in requests for help from families who are facing eviction and people who are in danger of having their heat turned off,” said federation president Shira Ledman.

Contributions to the fund are being sought from the community.

A “generous federation donor” will match contributions up to a total of $25,000, according to Stuart Mellan, president of the federation, in an announcement sent to potential donors.

Donations are tax deductible. For more information, call federation offices at 577-9393.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
