Bring the Miami Service Challenge to Your Organization

Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center (JVC) is taking its popular volunteer programming one step further with its Miami Service Challenge, which encourages local groups to participate in rewarding service projects. Thanks to generous funding from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, tax-exempt nonprofits can apply for a grant to implement one of 10 turn-key JVC projects that serve homeless people, hungry families, lonely older adults and other vulnerable populations. Selected organizations receive instructions, supplies and other guidance from JVC to ensure each project's success. These include everything from creating no-sew blankets and coloring books for children and seniors to making casseroles for Camillus House. Grant recipients will even be able to hold their own Everything but the Turkey pre-Thanksgiving event, one of the JVC’s most successful and popular volunteer activities to date.
