Join The Fun & Help Support Seniors During COVID-19
URGENT: Volunteer delivery drivers & kitchen help needed to distribute meals to seniors in our community. Delivery routes & kitchen shifts take just 2-3 hrs in the morning/afternoon. Lunches are distributed in Richmond, El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward, and San Leandro using contact-free delivery procedures. If you are not in an elevated risk group for COVID-19 and are available a few hours a month we want to hear from you.
Ever wanted to work in a kitchen or learn more about Japanese food? Would you like to deliver nourishing lunches to people who can't shop or cook for themselves anymore? Maybe you are a sociable person who would enjoy visiting or calling a senior weekly.
J-Sei is a longstanding nonprofit that offers many rewarding volunteer opportunities. You can be involved periodically or on a consistent ongoing basis. You can bring a smile to seniors by preparing hot lunches, delivering meals to seniors, providing weekly visits to at a senior's home or calling a senior. You will help an older adult stay healthier and happier! We also have office work related to mailings or data entry. Assistance with event planning is appreciated too.
Our volunteers and staff are fun and upbeat - we welcome you to join us!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

The mission of J-Sei is to be a community and cultural organization that brings generations and families together to nurture and pass on Nikkei values and tradition through a broad array of services and programs. Our resources, information and services are relevant to the entire continuum of care for seniors, as well as their families and all ages of the Nikkei community. Our guiding values include dignity, trust, independence, social connection and respect for elders, as well as communication in families and quality of life for all.
J-Sei has been the only senior service provider focused on supporting Japanese American elderly in the east bay for the past 43 years. Today, J-Sei continues this rich history of supporting families throughout the community with the mission to promote and nurture Nikkei values with a broader multi-ethnic and multi-generational base. Through our Senior Center, classes and activities, congregate Japanese lunches, lectures and educational presentations our seniors stay actively involved. J-Sei also provides resources to help seniors remain independent for as long as possible in their own homes. These services include bilingual case management services, home-delivered Japanese meals, a pilot transportation program, Friendly Visitor/Friendly Caller programs, a caregiver registry and long term care consulting. J-Sei Home is a licensed residential care facility for the elderly in Hayward that provides warm, supportive and culturally appropriate care to 14 residents.
