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.
Collect new warm, waterproof or water-resistant, winter coats. We need children’s, women’s and men’s. Small and medium are the most needed sizes, but we can use a few large, too.
Assist with setting up or day-of tasks for events.
Typically, on Fridays before an event, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Duties include event support, leading various stations, assisting staff, general set-up and clean up. Some heavy lifting may be involved.
Volunteers will prepare, load and deliver needed items to homebound individuals and families on a designated route. A personal vehicle is required for this position.
This is a great opportunity for families!
Help support the Polack Food Bank during our annual Community-Wide Food Drive, which officially begins with announcements at Rosh Hashanah and culminates at the Food Sort.
The Food Sort is a one-day event at the end of our Community-Wide Food Drive. Hundreds of volunteers come to our donated warehouse space to help sort and organize Food Drive donations.
Warm gloves and socks are in high demand during the cold and rainy season in Seattle. Help keep community members warm with these small, but meaningful items. Adult sizes needed.
The Polack Food Bank needs paper grocery bags with two sturdy handles. People visiting the Food Bank use these bags to carry their items home, and JFS staff use them to deliver food to homebound individuals.
