Gloria Max, Citizen of the Year 2015
In her twenty-three years as Executive Director of the Jewish Federation of Volusia & Flagler Counties, Gloria has offered a helping hand to children and families in need. She has administered the distribution of over 81,00 backpacks with school supplies and overseen the Jerry Doliner Food Bank-- which serves over four hundred people weekly. In addition, her efforts have provided countless familes with holiday provisions.
Many families in need have been provided with financial help to pay their utility and rental bills and purchase prescription drugs, wheelchairs, walkers, and other medical equipment. During the hurricanes and wildfires, the Federation provided food and medicine to home-bound seniors.
Wherever there is a need, Gloria Max is ready to help! It is for these many years of dedicated serice to our community that CFOB is proud to honor Gloria Max, as our 2015 Citizen of the Year.
