One year later after the start of the pandemic, our world continues to suffer from the economic and social impacts of COVID-19. Just as we did in 2020, JCJ is encouraging our community to make a special Tzedaka box to collect donations for those still impacted by the global pandemic. As this reality has put an even greater percentage of people in need, it is important that we are mindful of those who are working in unsafe conditions as well as those who are experiencing unemployment and economic hardship.

Residents of South Central in Los Angeles are 2 to 3 times as likely to die from preventable diseases.
