Show your children the value of volunteering. JFS has a variety of opportunities for families of all ages to help make a difference in their community. Get involved by joining a family-friendly volunteer event or participating in a reoccurring volunteer shift. Together, we can make a difference.
Make a difference with a creative project that directly impacts lives in our community. Contact Volunteer Services to create your own project as an individual or with a group. DIY volunteer ideas make for great b’nai mitzvah projects. For the most up-to-date needs of JFS and those we serve, please contact Volunteer Services at email@example.com or (206) 861-3155.
Our annual Community-Wide Food Drive & Sort looks a little different this year, due to COVID-19. But we need your help more than ever to make sure our community has access to healthy and nutritious food! Because gathering in large numbers for the Food Sort won’t be possible this year, we are pivoting to a new, monthly food drive model. Round up your friends and family to launch your own mini food drive, or engage your synagogue, school or company if you’re part of an organization.
Our mini food drives will be taking place each month through the end of June 2021. Learn more about the drives and sign up for one today!
Volunteers harvest produce and weed garden beds as needed. This opportunity is best for ages 8 or older—please consider your child’s ability to wear a mask and gloves for the entire two hours in varying weather conditions before signing up.
One two-hour shift.
