Volunteers are a vital part of our Jewish community. The Federation thanks those individuals who generously donate their time to help us fulfill our mission. Whether serving on a committee, baking holiday meals, visiting the elderly, or stuffing envelopes, there are lots of ways to make a difference in our community.
One way to volunteer is to participate in our Care Packages for Seniors program. Each Purim and Rosh Hashanah, The Federation delivers care packages with freshly baked hamentaschen, or challah, apples and honey to members of the communtiy in group living facilities, hospitals and at home seniors.
Below are a few of our Federation's ongoing volunteer opportunities:
Set tables at the Older Adult Kosher Hot Meal Program
Deliver meals to homebound seniors
Make calls on Super Sunday
Assist with community mailings
Visit homebound seniors and residents of senior living facilities
Bake, pack and deliver holiday packages to seniors
Join the Federation's Tikkun Olam Volunteer Network (TOV)
TOV means "good " in Hebrew and the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' Tikkun Olam Volunteer Network connects community members of all ages with mitzvah opportunities to do a little "good" and make a difference in our community.
