Giving Back is a Learned Behavior

This week, a group of young visitors stopped by the offices of JF&CS where they demonstrated their joy in helping others.

Leah, Seth and Jayme stopped by and got the opportunity to visit the Kosher Food Pantry and learn how it helps those in need. Last year, they sold lemonade to raise money for JF&CS’s Emergency Financial Assistance to, in their words, “help people from being homeless.” This year, they came to JF&CS to “do the difference” as one of them calls volunteering.

They also had a chance to visit IndependenceWorks where they hung out with program clients, and as a bonus, met a lovable service dog who came to visit. A good time was had by all, and the three volunteers decided they would bring food for the pantry on their next trip.

"We love the opportunity to give young visitors a tour of our facility to learn about all of the ways that people can help make an impact in the lives of those we serve," stated Faye Dresner, Chief Impact Officer for JF&CS. “Seeing the work we do through the eyes of our three volunteers lifted all of us up!”
