Volunteer

There are several volunteer opportunities with JFS. If you are able to volunteer your time we can always use help with the programs listed below.

Supermarketing for Seniors

Our clients can’t get to the supermarket, and have no friends or relatives nearby to do their shopping. Your shopping assistance makes it possible for them to preserve their independence and stay in their own homes.

Bikur Cholim - Friendly Visiting

Do you have an hour to visit a senior? You will brighten their day!

The Bikur Cholim Program operates onsite at Greenwich Hospital, and at all six Greenwich facilities that serve the elderly and infirm. Translated, visiting the sick, – The Bikur Cholim Project reaches out to and engages the frail elderly, the infirm and the disabled; our volunteers and staff visit with and care for Alzheimer’s patients, participants in adult day care, residents of assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and hospital patients.

If you or someone you know would like to volunteer please email lmgoldberg@jfsgreenwich.org for further information.

 

Office Help

Are you looking for ways to help JFS?

JFS can always use an extra pair of helping hands! We often need volunteers to do simple administrative tasks such as filing, database entry and mailings, or to help out with a special event. Whether you have a couple hours each week or a free afternoon or evening, we welcome your help!
