During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Currently Jewish Family & Community Services has over 100 survivors of the Holocaust, and many senior suffering from food insecurity living in the Jacksonville area at or below the poverty level.
With food delivery that does not violate cultural values, we can provide food bi-monthly to these survivors thanks to a partnership with Feeding Northeast Florida. The food care packages we receive benefit our seniors and our survivors and prevent them from having to worry about having food or getting other necessary things for their health.
We are in need of administrative help, food packers, food inspectors, and delivery drivers for us to be able to continue to provide this wonderful benefit to some of the most in-need people in the greater Jacksonville area.
Due to privacy issues, every volunteer must have a valid driver's license, be background checked and fingerprinted by JFCS.
The deliveries occur the first and third Wednesday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
There are many in need in Florida, and we need your help to make their lives a little more manageable.

The mission of Jewish Family & Community Services is to strengthen the entire community by providing individual and family social services in the Jewish tradition of helping people help themselves.
Jewish Family & Community Services, Inc. (JFCS) has been a vital part of the Jacksonville Community since 1917, lending a helping hand to people from all walks of life. JFCS has changed the lives of thousands on the First Coast, from the young to the aged, the hurting, the lonely and the lost. JFCS just celebrated 100 years of service to Northeast Florida, and we remain true to its mission to "strengthening the entire community by providing family and individual social services in the Jewish tradition of helping people help themselves."
JFCS provides the ENTIRE community with family-centered services designed to strengthen the skills necessary for self-sufficiency and well-being. The Agency's six core programs work together to protect at-risk children, keep families together, prevent homelessness, feed the hungry, help struggling students succeed and strengthen the coping skills of emotionally distressed individuals and families. JFCS is unique in that, from a single point of entry, clients have access to a number of wraparound services: case management, private adoption, outpatient mental health counseling and assessment, in-home dropout prevention services for middle-school students and their families, life skills education, emergency financial assistance, a food pantry and services designed specifically for the Jewish community - including Holocaust survivors programming.
We'll work with your schedule.
