Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island

  • 28 people are interested

Volunteer to visit a homebound senior in your area. These seniors desperately need the human contact and socialization and WE need YOU to help us do that!

Trust me on this....volunteering with seniors is a life-changing experience - even for the volunteer! Your energy, enthusiasm, time, and skills truly have the power to change how these seniors live day to day- and at the same time you’re likely to find that the experience is changing you too. You’ll be giving much of yourself, but you’ll receive much in return!
