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.
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.

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.
