Federation launches campaign challenge

By Stephanie Smartschan

The Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley’s Annual Campaign “all starts with you.”

This year, the Federation is offering a unique opportunity for those who make their pledges to the 2020 Campaign by Nov. 1.

Families that make a combined pledge of $365 or more by the deadline will have the opportunity to have their photos taken by a professional photographer. The photo shoots will take place on Nov. 6 and 7 at the JCC, and each family will be able to sign up for a 5-minute time slot.

All other individuals or families who make pledges by that date will receive a special gift.

“A pledge is simply a promise to make a donation to the campaign,” said Aaron Gorodzinsky, director of campaign and security planning for the Federation. “In receiving these pledges early in the year, we are able to be more mindful and planful as we determine how we will allocate this year’s campaign dollars.”

Pledges do not have to be paid until December of 2020. 

To make your pledge to the Jewish Federation by Nov. 1, call 610-821-5500, email mailbox@jflv.org or visit www.jewishlehighvalley.org.
