JFS seeks volunteers

JFS has numerous volunteer opportunities for those who would like to donate their time to help others. Some of these opportunities include:

Grocery Assistance - 2-3 volunteers are needed every other week to place and deliver ShopRite Shop- From-Home orders for our Village by the Shore members.

Kosher Meal Delivery - 2 volunteers are needed to help with 2-3 kosher meal deliveries on Thursdays every week in the Margate-Ventnor-AC area and also Egg Harbor Township area. Total estimated time per week: less than 1.5 hours.

Trash Valet (Margate), Wednesday/Thursdays/Fridays - volunteers are needed to take cans to the curb and back to the house for our Village by the Shores Members. If you’d be willing to help a neighbor with this kind act of service, please contact JFS.

Phone Check-Ins – volunteers are needed to make a few phone calls each week to check in on our Village by the Shore members. Our goal is to make sure each Village by the Shore member receives a friendly phone call weekly.

Friendly Visitors for Village by the Shore Members (ongoing commitment) – a few compassionate friends are needed to visit Village by the Shore members on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

Substitute Volunteers – Those who are unable to make an ongoing commitment can sign up for our sub list and take over for other volunteers doing grocery delivery, kosher meals on wheels, and trash valet when those volunteers are out of town.

JFS can also help students who are looking to do a mitzvah project or community service project. For information on any of these volunteer opportunities, contact Sarah Lee, community initiatives coordinator, at 609- 822-1108, extension 249.
