The Volunteer Resource Center is an important part of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. Throughout the year we recruit and place many volunteers who help to fulfill the needs of Jewish Federation and its beneficiary agencies.
Several people have become volunteers for the Friendly Visitors program at the Ruth Rales Jewish Family Service. As volunteers, they made social visits to homebound seniors. These compassionate visits provide companionship for the elderly on a weekly basis throughout the year. Also many people have desired to become a grandparent to a child who may not have their own grandparent in the area. These volunteers are happy to give a little love and attention to children who have this special need.
What would a Federation without a food pantry? Over 55 volunteers at the Jacobson Family Food Pantry at JFS have volunteered this year to bag and deliver food to the needy in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach. More volunteers are needed to accomplish this vital service. Volunteers find it rewarding and gratifying to fulfill this task especially at Rosh Hashana and Passover.
Is Jewish culture an interest to you? Then look no further than the Adolf and Rose Levis Jewish Community Center’s Nathan D. Rosen Gallery’s docent program. Many people have been recruited to act as docents for the gallery. This is a fun opportunity to learn about various artists and their outstanding exhibits. The first exhibit of this season is “Golden Treasures of My Heart” by Rebecca Schweiger – an internationally renowned contemporary painter who works in watercolors, oils and graphics – an exhibit not to be missed.
Federation assists students with special needs. For example, at Hillel Day School, one of Federation’s beneficiary agencies, volunteers have been recruited to help children improve their reading skills. Teenagers who must complete community service hours for graduation have a wonderful opportunity to satisfy their requirement by volunteering with our Federation.
