In the heart of Broward County, Florida, where the sun’s warmth is rivaled only by the warmth of the community, a group of passionate individuals from Fathom Realty Fort Lauderdale/Miami gathered on Friday, August 18th for a mission that transcended real estate. Their destination: The Cupboard of Jewish Family Services, a non-profit organization with a remarkable mission – to provide sustenance and support to over 1,200 Jewish families every month, including 600 Holocaust survivors.
The Cupboard: A Haven of Hope
The Cupboard of Jewish Family Services is more than just a pantry; it’s a sanctuary for those facing the daily challenge of putting food on their tables. Their mission is grounded in compassion and the unwavering belief that no one in the community should go to bed hungry. This mission touches the lives of hundreds of families each month.
Rosh Hashanah and the Gift of Giving
On that special Friday in August, the Fathom team embarked on a mission that was especially significant as they prepared for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, in September. The task at hand was as heartwarming as it was essential – packing and bagging a generous donation of apples. These apples would provide nourishment and carry with them the spirit of the holiday – a time of reflection, renewal, and hope.
For the families receiving these bags of apples, the gesture was more than just a gift of sustenance; it was a gesture of care, understanding, and a reminder that they were part of a larger community that cared for them.
A Day of Impact and Contagious Serving
The day spent at The Cupboard was an unforgettable experience, as Angela Nunez, District Director of Fathom Realty Miami, described it: “What an amazing experience!! We had no idea this organization existed before one of our agents told me about it. Lourdes, the coordinator there at The Cupboard, was so grateful and helpful.”
This service event allowed Fathom agents to take off their “job hats momentarily” and unite to make a meaningful impact in their community. It was a day of joy, camaraderie, and shared laughter. The sense of fulfillment that comes from serving others was palpable, leaving a mark on everyone involved.
In the spirit of contagious serving, some agents are already planning to return and bring family and friends to serve once more. It’s a testament to the enduring impact of service and the desire to continue making a difference in the lives of those in need.
