Putting Your Skills into Action

It is always gratifying to see people use their talents and skills to help others. One of our volunteers, who is a dietician and professor, recently called the Jewish Volunteer Center. Every winter she leaves her snowy state and heads south to the sun and warmth of Miami Beach. She wanted to use her skills in a meaningful way, so we, at the JVC, connected her to an agency where she can teach nutrition classes to attendees at Jewish Community Services congregate meal sites.
The Federation would love to have more volunteers with outstanding skills and talents give back to our community. Skill-based volunteers can help the most vulnerable in meaningful ways while serving needs that may be unmet without their help. If you have a skill and want to put it to good use, call us. We will find a volunteer opportunity that is right for you!
All the best,
