Give Your Time

Giving your time and talents is a rewarding way to connect with our Jewish community
while supporting Federation, its partners, and those in need.

Ready to get involved?

We have a wide variety of volunteering opportunities available, which includes reading to youth at schools who struggle with literacy, helping out at our food pantry, ushering or ticketing during a film for book festival event, delivering welcome bags to recent arrivals to our community, making calls during our annual fundraising phone-a-thon, and coaching youth athletics teams. 

For each opportunity below, we've listed a point-of-contact for you to reach out to.
