These events provide families an opportunity to support vulnerable people at holidays and all year long. Hands-on work plus advocacy and Jewish learning make these events a great chance to connect with old and new friends.
Do-It-Yourself Volunteer Ideas
There are lots of useful projects you can do at home, in a classroom, or with friends from your neighborhood, book club or synagogue. Here are some ways to help Emergency Services clients and Refugee & Immigrant Service Center clients.
Sunday Volunteering in the Polack Food Bank
Volunteers needed to help in the food bank on two Sundays each month. Second Sunday needs helpers from 1-3 pm, and on the fourth Sunday we are seeking helpers from 10-12. This is a good opportunity for families with children over the age of 7.
Home Delivery Needs You
Volunteers are needed to make regular monthly home deliveries. Each volunteer delivers groceries to a small group of clients; requires driving your own vehicle and coming to JFS to pick-up the groceries. We now offer two Sundays a month to pick up your groceries for delivery, plus times during the week. This is a good opportunity for families with children who are able to help pack grocery bags and deliver.
Friendly Visitors for Seniors
We are seeking visitors for seniors in various areas of Seattle. We are always entering new seniors and other clients who would like a visitor. If you can visit someone at least every other week, please call.
