Abramson Senior Care of Greater Philadelphia is proud to be receiving $110,775 from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Maimonides Fund for Health and Human Service Relief. In just six short weeks, the Jewish Federation raised $1 million that was matched with $500,000 from the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) – making a total impact of $1.4 million going out into our community to serve the most vulnerable members of the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community. All of the money raised was granted to 13 local organizations and agencies, including Abramson Senior Care.
Holly Nelson, Chair of Jewish Federation’s Emergency Response Committee shared,"We are truly grateful for the generosity of the Maimonides Fund donors who stepped up to ensure that individuals of all ages who have been deeply affected by the pandemic are receiving the assistance they need. The Jewish Federation is committed to supporting our entire community. The success of this Fund and the larger Jewish Federation COVID Emergency Fund, is a testament to the power of our collective.”
Working alongside Federation, Abramson Senior Care helped raise $45,000 for the Fund. Money granted through the Maimonides Fund will provide countless essential services to the vulnerable individuals that Abramson Senior Care serves. The funds will be allocated towards costs associated with PPE and the hiring of additional staff including a nurse practitioner and other homecare support.
“The pandemic has brought unique challenges to all, but especially to seniors who are particularly vulnerable to the virus,” says Sean Gregson, vice president. “We quickly mobilized to provide medical care and services to those seniors who needed support but were unable to leave their homes. Thanks to the generous support of the Jewish community, we will be able to expand these important services to reach even more seniors in need.”
