The Power of Giving: Holiday Meal Delivery
Over the years, JFS has delivered thousands of kosher, holiday meals to homebound, low income Jewish seniors. Meals are free of charge and are delivered by volunteers before Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Thanksgiving, and Hanukkah. It is part of our Jewish communal responsibility to honor our parents and care for seniors.
Volunteers Needed!
We are currently recruiting volunteers to assist with the upcoming Thanksgiving/Hanukkah meal delivery on Wednesday, November 21st . Meal delivery starts around 10AM. Please contact Cherryl Faye at or (407)644-7593 ext. 239 if interested.

Share in the holiday spirit of giving by volunteering!
Can't volunteer? You can still support our Holiday Meal Delivery program by making an online donation today!
