We have been happily overwhelmed by people calling to volunteer. We appreciate every email and phone call! At the present time, we are utilizing a large pool of already trained JFS volunteers and staff to adapt our programs to today’s reality. Please follow us on Facebook where we will post requests when additional volunteers are needed or when we have last minute needs. Thank you for your concern and willingness to help!
