Pittsburgh. Poway. Halle.
A dangerous time of year for our community's most vulnerable.

Last January, windchill dropped the temperature in Toronto to 35 below zero. When it gets that cold, skin can freeze in ten minutes.

For many of us, winter simply means a slower commute. For the thousands of Jewish community members struggling with poverty in our city, a brutal winter can mean higher clothing and energy bills, painful walks in the cold, and crippling isolation.

When you give to UJA, you help make winter warmer and safer for at-risk Jewish seniors and children.

No single program can fully meet this challenge. This is why UJA has a multi-faceted strategy, using our network of agencies, to help those in need during these crucial winter months. Your gift helps us provide vulnerable community members with:

  • Kosher meals delivered to one’s door
  • Financial aid to help cover necessities, like heating bills
  • Winter clothing donations
  • Rides to medical appointments
  • Social programs to prevent isolation among seniors
