Stocking Food at the Jewish Food Bank

I volunteer because I have a strong sense of community, and giving of my time and effort is my way of contributing.” – Jonathan

I volunteer to keep my mind active and alert. I realize that people like me doing it, so that makes me feel good. After 9 years, I am still doing it.” – Avrom

I just love the seniors and sometimes they need help…You learn such wise lessons from them…the best part is that I love to give people compassion, help and empathy.” – Roxanne
