JFCS CEO Carlos Hernández attended the weekly Tucson Charity Bridge Club meeting today and accepted a donation of $2,700. JFCS was nominated as the charity organization for the month of September by Seymore Einstein, of blessed memory, who was a member of the Club.
Formed in 2011, and Club’s first game was played right after the tragic shooting rampage in Tucson that took the lives of six people, and seriously injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and several other people. A beautiful 9-year-old girl by the name of Christina-Taylor Green was one of the people fatally injured. The club donated their proceeds that day to the Christina-Taylor Green Fund, to help children in our community, in her memory.
In his brief thank you speech, Carlos spoke about JFCS’s services to the entire community, including services for older adults. He highlighted the JFCS First Responders program. The Tucson Charity Bridge Club donation will support services to first responders and their families.
