Two of the greatest areas of need for newly settled refugees are food and transportation. To help meet these needs, Jewish Vocational Service (JVS) and Jewish Family Services (JFS) are announcing a new partnership to improve the lives of these families.
JFS and JVS are recruiting volunteers to prepare and deliver monthly food boxes to families under the direction of the JFS food pantry, and drive refugee families to important appointments. The agencies plan to have both programs operating by mid-March.
To receive information about volunteer opportunities and other ways you can get involved, please send an email to email@example.com. We will keep you updated with volunteer opportunities and details.
Food & Paper Goods: Rice, beans, toilet paper, and paper towels can be dropped in Food Pantry barrels located at JFS Brookside East and JFS at The J. See location maps.
Monetary Donations: Support food boxes for refugee families in Kansas City with a monetary donation of any amount. Please mark “Other” in the donation dropdown menu and note “Refugee Food Assistance” in the text box. Go to donation page.
