Friends & Partners Who Volunteer Together, Stay Together
Okay, so we don’t have any real evidence to back this up, but it’s something we believe to be true. We know that relationships are strengthened and tested with time, travel, and togetherness. We have many volunteer opportunities at JFS that incorporate all of the above – most notably On the Go Volunteer Driving Program and Foodmobile. Make this summer a season of love and community by hopping into the car with your friend or sweetheart and making a difference in the life of an older adult who needs a ride, a meal, or a friendly visit. Chances are, your life will be changed, too.
Start today at www.jfssd.org/volunteer. Send us your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to Facebook tagging @JewishFamilyServiceSD.
School’s out, but hunger never stops!
Join us for a Summer Food Boost! Help keep our food pantry stocked by leading a food drive this summer! June is the start of a dwindling food supply for local food pantries, and we need your support to keep families fed this summer. We can supply you with the bins and make a pickup when they're full. Highly desired items include canned tuna, peanut butter, dried beans, oatmeal, rice, pasta, canned vegetables and soups, toiletries, and diapers. Contact Brendan Rosen at email@example.com or (858) 637-3243 to get started today!
Help Protect Seniors From Trips and Falls in Their Home

Join the Team That Drives On the Go
We’re a team of volunteer drivers. When older adults make the tough decision to “turn in their keys,” we help them hold on to their independence by getting them where they need to go. Sometimes we drive people to the doctor, and sometimes to visit friends. We’re about helping our neighbors stay connected to the people and places they love most. Make a difference – with just a few hours a month. Ready to get started? Apply today at www.jfssd.org/otgvolapp.
