Individuals & Families

At JFCS, we share a collective calling to do lasting good in our community. Our volunteer program plays an important role in enriching the lives of those who are vulnerable and in need of help. It also creates meaningful opportunities for children and adults to understand the lasting impact their contributions make in our community.

There are so many ways for children and families to get involved! Opportunities include:

Making Prepared Food for Basic Needs Program

JFCS hosts monthly opportunities for volunteers to prepare sandwiches and ready-to-heat meals in our Teaching Kitchen. All prepared foods benefit our mobile basic needs program and are distributed to community members at Our Closet In Your Neighborhood pop-up events or packaged for clients receiving monthly groceries.

Sorting Clothing with Our Closet

Our Closet volunteers make a meaningful impact by collecting, sorting, and distributing clothing donations to people in need. Volunteers are welcome to join us for a variety of projects: organizing and creating emergency packages at our warehouse, staffing our pop-up shops or In Your Neighborhood visits to help shoppers to get the clothing they need, or leading clothing drives for much-needed items.

Friendly Callers

Volunteers reach out to homebound or isolated individuals for weekly chats to brighten their spirits and provide a social lifeline. Our Friendly Caller program has created meaningful and lasting friendships.
