JFS volunteers make it happen!

March 19, 2019

More than 400 community members showed up to rake leaves and prepare the homes of older adults for winter.

138 people donated time and money to ensure 144 families could celebrate Thanksgiving with a proper meal.
More than 400 volunteers shopped, wrapped and schlepped so ensure that 857 individuals served by JFS would have a gift to open for the winter holidays.

More than 120 b’nai mitzvah students baked challahs, made Hanukkah cards, cooked soup for the homeless and created brighten-their-day bundles for isolated older adults.

JFS couldn’t serve the thousands we do each year without our generous volunteers who show up time and time again to make a difference. And for that, we thank you!
