Jewish Family & Child Service, Making a Difference!
Be matched up with an isolated individual who is seeking companionship and support. Volunteers visit on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, either at the client’s home or taking them out to lunch, shopping, or other outside activities. Caring and meaningful relationships reduce the risk of depression and enhance quality of life so help us make a difference in as little as an hour a week!
Sometimes the simplest of tasks mean the most. By assisting low-income elderly and disabled clients with home based tasks, you help empower them to remain in their home with dignity and respect by helping keep it clean and safe.
Examples of tasks include:
Many of our clients would greatly benefit from the gift of being transported to doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, & other similar tasks. If you want to help make a difference in the lives of our clients, sign up to be a driver today!
If you have skills, experience or expertise you would be willing to share on a limited, pro-bono basis with members of our community, sign up today to become a mensch!
Examples of skills include:
Assist staff with agency bulk mailing projects, stuffing envelopes, photocopying, filing, spreadsheet tracking, creating letters, possibly light reception duties to relieve agency staff, and other miscellaneous clerical duties.
Join the team to help lead and implement our new Tzedakah Centerpiece program. This program will utilize community volunteers that will create table centerpieces for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs for a tax-deductible rental fee. The centerpieces will be customized for each event, delivered, and returned by volunteers. The leadership team for this project will work closely with staff to build and develop the program.
Help assemble the beautiful centerpieces and decorate with ribbons for each individual event. Commitment is 1-2 hours for each event.
Join us in the preparation of food boxes, gift wrapping, and delivery for our clients.
