Volunteer Your Time

Jewish Family Services is currently offering two COVID-19 related volunteer opportunities: 

  • Volunteers are needed to pack and deliver groceries for the Anja Rosenberg Kosher Food Pantry and also to run errands to stores. The deliveries are contactless (you pick up bags outside of JFS and deliver them outside of the recipient's home). For more information, please email Cody Daigle-Orians.
  • Project Quaranteer is a great way to get children involved in COVID-19 volunteering from home. Families purchase selected snack items and assemble care packages for families in need, from home. Click here for details.
