JF&CS Volunteer News Spring 2013

Rimma ZelfandNational Volunteer Week is a time for JF&CS to recognize all of our volunteers who generously offer your energy, compassion, and friendship to those in need.

JF&CS volunteers like you help make life better in many ways for new moms, seniors, people with disabilities, and the most vulnerable. You celebrate the holidays with elders in our Friendly Visitor program, advocate for nursing home residents, collect and deliver food to hungry families, spend time with weary new moms, help keep our office running, and serve on our board and advisory committees.

Each volunteer gives according to his or her availability, skills, and interests. You offer hands-on support, work behind the scenes, and help us look to the future. Some of our volunteers are new to the organization and some have worked with us for decades. Some help once a week, once a month, or once a year. No matter how you contribute, the agency would not be able to do its work without your hard work and dedication.

Together our 2,700 volunteers make a powerful network that enables us to expand our reach, serve more clients, and have a significant impact in the community. JF&CS is so very grateful for your tireless support. Thank you.
