JFS SV Equipped to Learn Backpack Drive
Now through July 26
Join us in helping needy students be equipped to learn
Congregation Beth David is once again partnering with Jewish Family Services to collect backpacks and school supplies for preschool through adult learners. With your help, these students will be off a great start to a successful 2017-18  school year! There are several ways you and your family can help.  You can donate a full backpack for a needy student based from a requested supply list, you can purchase Target gift cards, or buy from JFS’ online registry.  Check JFS’ web site for details.  Any questions or if you would like to volunteer with your children (over 10 years old please) email Lori  .

Become a JFS Friendly Visitor — Make A Real Difference in the Life of An Isolated Senior!
JFS is in need of empathetic and committed volunteers to become Friendly Visitors.  A JFS Friendly Visitor is matched up with an isolated senior for a weekly or every other week visit and they form lasting friendships with the senior. Our Friendly Visitors say that they get so much more than they give. Volunteers must be amenable to JFS’ screening process. Email Lori Cinnamon.
