Our “visiting friends” program enriches the lives of participants and volunteers. Make a home visit or phone call to a homebound or partially homebound person and help them feel valued and appreciated. Make a friend for life. For more information about the program, click here.

Volunteers are always needed for our Lifeline program. Volunteers call subscribers once a month as a reminder to test the equipment. These calls provide a personal touch, establishing a bridge of communication between JFS and our subscribers.
Passover Food Basket Distribution Program
For over 35 years, JFS has ensured that everyone in our community is able to celebrate Passover through the Bruce Levy Memorial JFS Passover Food Basket Program. Your help is needed to assemble or distribute baskets filled with the food and ritual items necessary to celebrate Passover. Learn more about the program here.
