The Joukowsky Family Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Sharp Rescuer Prize. Marc Jacobs and Lucia Panichella of JFS of Metrowest, along with community partners Ed and Barbara Shapiro, are honored for their tireless work supporting Syrian refugees through the Jewish Family Service Syrian Refugee Humanitarian Project. The work of the Sharp Prize recipients exemplifies the value that each individual can step forward and transform, and even save a life. The Sharp Rescuer Prize promotes humanitarian work in the example of Waitstill and Martha Sharp and seeks to empower rescuers today who sacrifice for others. This social justice award is awarded annually in honor of the Sharps and their commitment to the Unitarian Universalist core values of justice and compassion. Congrats to JFS and team for receiving The Sharp Rescuer Prize!
