JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE BOARD OF DIRECTORS:
Community members in California’s Coachella Valley are recruited to serve on the board of directors. Board members serve an initial one-year term, followed by two-year terms, if re-elected. Board meetings are held nine to 10 times a year, and members are expected to serve on at least one committee. There is an annual meeting, usually held in April.
JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE AUXILIARY:
The JSF Auxiliary is a vital group of dedicated volunteers who support the mission of JFS through a variety of planned activities and fundraising events. Proceeds from their events benefit JFS community programs including holidays gift giving, Shabbat-in-a- Bag, camp scholarships and emergency assistance. If you would like to meet others who share your values of Tzedakah through planned activities, please consider becoming part of the JFS Auxiliary.
LET'S DO LUNCH!
The Let's Do Lunch! program is designed is designed to decrease isolation and increase mental stimulation by providing isolated senior with twice monthly activities outside their home. Programs are provided at senior centers and senior apartment complexes and are designed to encourage seniors to interact with other participants to increase socialization. Volunteers are needed to assist senior with a variety of tasks at the program sites.
Volunteer office aides work a minimum of four hours a week at our main location in Palm Springs, Calif. While tasks vary based on the skills of the volunteer, they tend to include greeting clients; answering the telephone; filing; organizing client records; and data entry for those with computer skills.
A FRIENDLY VISITOR:
Make a connection with isolated older adults on a regular basis by visiting two or three times a month. Time spent together may be in playing cards, watching TV or taking the senior out for an errand or lunch. This volunteer may be the only person the senior will see all week other than care givers.
TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM - JFS Express:
JFS is always on the lookout for drivers. Volunteers are needed to drive seniors who do not have transportation to much needed medical appointments, wait for them, and return them home. Such a simple act, for a senior, can really be life saving.
