Volunteer  Activities

Jewish Family Services works to actively engage the Jewish community in meaningful volunteer activities. Last year volunteers logged in over 2200 hours of service!  Through their tremendous commitment and dedication, our volunteers exemplify the spirit of tikkun olam, repairing the world. Whether you are an older adult or a pre-schooler, we can find something for you to do that you will enjoy. And if we don’t have something that appeals to you, through our connections to close to 200 organizations we can find something  that will meet your interests.

 

Programs include Yom Tikkun Olam, Friendly Visitors, Holiday Gift bags, Senior Holiday Luncheons, J-Drive, and many others, so please contact us.

You may mail the application to our mailing address, attach it to an email to  jschleuning@shalomgreensboro.org, or drop it by our office.

  • YOM TIKKUN OLAM

    On Yom Tikkun Olam, we give our time to make a difference in the community.
    Volunteers of all ages work together to perform acts of social responsibility and kindness – fulfilling our shared obligation for tikkun olam, repairing the world. Participants gather early for a delicious breakfast, kick-off rally, and group photo before heading out to volunteer at one of several project sites.

  • J Drive

    Help an older adult with their transportation needs. After a careful screening, volunteers can be approved to provide rides to those who need this assistance when the JFS van is not available.

  • Friendly Visitors

    Would you like to visit an older adult who is isolated? Without the stimulation that social interaction and friendship provide, an isolated elder can experience poor health, a lack of strength and energy, depression, and other emotional, and mental health problems. Visits from our friendly volunteers can help change by providing socialization and a caring relationship.

  • David D. Frazier Food Pantry at Jewish Family Services

    Maintaining The David D. Frazier Food Pantry at Jewish Family Services is a community effort. There are many opportunities for volunteers and community groups to get involved. Weighing, sorting, shelving, and bagging are some of the many activities help that you and your family can do. Children love working in the pantry — and we are happy to include them.

  • B'nai Mitzvah Projects

    Does your son or daughter need to do volunteer service as part of becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Call us and we can give you some ideas, connect you to organizations, or set up something here in our own community.

  • Reading Mentors

    Enhance and enrich the learning opportunities for new readers in 1st grade at B'nai Shalom Day School. Volunteers are needed from 9:30 - 10 a.m. every Tuesday morning during the school year. This is a great way to have fun and help a child improve their reading skills.

  • Senior Holiday Luncheons

    Over 100 guests participate every year and volunteers play a huge role in making our annual Senior Rosh Hashanah and Passover Luncheons successful. Help set up, help serve, help add to the festivities! Our presence is important.
