Your Guide to Volunteerism

On this page we have listed several Jewish Family & Children's Service programs and activities, which appear in our web pages. We hope that you will consider volunteering your time to help us provide essential services to more people.  There are volunteer opportunities that are available several times a year or on regular basis.

Holiday Food Program
JF&CS provides food for individuals and families in financial need for the Thanksgiving and Passover holiday.  You can help by donating food, organizing a food drive with your synagogue, school or office, shopping for food we purchase, sorting donated food, making up food packages or delivering food packages. 

Thrift Shop:
Volunteers are needed to help unpack, clean and display glassware and home accessories in our thrift shop as well as keep the furniture and shelves dusted and clean.  Our store is located in Asbury Park.

Friendly Driver:
Be a "Friendly Driver" for one of our elderly shut-ins.  You can drive them to one of our congregate meal programs weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or whatever you are comfortable doing.  Your doing so enables an isolated senior to enjoy an outing and visit with other seniors and will bring much joy to a lonely person.  Make a difference in someone's life.

Mitzvah Projects:
There are a variety of Mitzvah Projects for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, confirmations or community service.  Organize specialized drives to collect food for the homeless, toiletries, socks, hats, scarves, coats...while learning about the special needs of the population we serve.

Clerical Assistance: 
Help put together special mailings such as our bi-annual newsletter, Passover, Chanukah and other specialized mailings.  Not a big commitment, just help out when needed. (Sporatic -- not on a regular basis)

Tribute Committee or JF&CS Board:
Join our Tribute Committee and help us organize our annual Tribute Dinner, Silent Auction, Raffle and Ad Journal.  Our Tribute Dinner is held in August and is the Agency's most important fund raising event.

Board of Directors:
Speak to our executive director if you are interested in getting more information about joining our Board of Directors.  Be part of the dedicated group of volunteers who oversee the finances and help guide the direction of the Agency's Mission.
