Making a Meaningful Impact

Center for Volunteerism

Join Our Mailing List

The Center for Volunteerism provides a variety of service opportunities to care for those in need, strengthen our Jewish community and make a difference in the lives of others.

Honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by performing an act of service to benefit others. Come together with your family to help local community members in need stay warm by creating Cold Weather Kits that will be distributed through local food pantries*. Kits will include socks, hot cocoa, tissues, and other cold weather essentials.

*Drop off your completed packages between Monday, January 17 (MLK Day) and Monday, January 24 at a location convenient to you.

For a list of drop off locations and instructions to participate, click button below.
