The JFS Community-Wide Food Drive kicks off with announcements at Rosh Hashanah and culminates with the Food Sort after Yom Kippur. The Food Sort is an excellent opportunity for individuals, families, and groups to help the Polack Food Bank sort and organize thousands of pounds of donations. A special thank you to our dedicated volunteers and community partners who step up each year to make this all possible.
Los voluntarios entregan cestas festivas especiales en torno a Rosh Hashaná, Janucá, Purim y Pascua a los miembros de la comunidad local. Se trata de una entrega sin contacto y es una gran oportunidad para las familias.

Sponsor an apartment set up: procure all of the essential household items needed to help welcome newly arrived refugees into their new homes. Items include pots and pans, utensils, bedding, and hygiene items. We ask that these items be new for the health and safety of our new neighbors. Groups are also welcome to assist with moving in and setting up an apartment.
Procure furniture donations: procure large, gently used furniture items such as couches, dining tables, and chairs for newly arrived refugees and store them until the resettlement team is ready to move them into an apartment.
Host an in-kind drive: create and run your own in-kind drive in your community to support our new neighbors. Sample drives include coats, kid toys, diapers and wipes, and feminine hygiene items. We ask that these items be new for the health and safety of our community members.
Make “welcome cards”: Letters or cards are appreciated with positive, warm messages. These will be left for families once an apartment is set up for them, providing a colorful welcome from the community.
