A VIL OF HOT CHICKEN SOUP
IIRE 110RE THAN A COLD.
The loss of family and friends, illness, loneliness and fear that no one care
can make growing old more painful -than the emptiness of hunger. -
But we have it in our poWer, all of us, to transform that pain into joy, that
loneliness into love.
Jewish Federation Apartments is constructing a second Prentis Towers
building, with 100 units, to provide additional housing at motlest cost for senior
citizens. A new kosher lunch program for older adults, funded by Federation and
the Federal government, provides 200 hot meals a week.
Programs for the elderly at the Jewish Community Center serve 500 people
every day. The Jewish Home for Aged has a day-time program; providing
activities and social contact for senior adults who live in the community' . And
other Federation agencies help thousands more through sheltered workshops,
delivery of hot meals and daily phone contacts, health care and other services.
This year, as you renew your pledge to help our elderly, remember that
their food, housing and medical costs have risen dramatically this past year. As
have our costs in helping them live with dignity and deqency.
But whatever it takes to help those who need our help —in Detroit, in Israel ,
and elsewhere abroad we shall not fail. Because wherever Vve are ,, we are one
