2018 Fall Volunteer Boot Camp

Feel good this Fall with these hands-on and heart-felt mitzvah opportunities throughout Greater MetroWest.

Experiences for all ages and stages available.

This Fall, we want to help promote and provide access to literacy for those who are less fortunate. Please consider bringing donations of new or gently used children’s books and early chapter books with you to any Volunteer Boot Camp session. We will donate the books to the Reading Buddies program, coordinated through Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ. We thank you for your generosity!
