Caring Hearts: JFCS Volunteers’ Impact

Volunteers play an important role in supporting Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) work in the community. With over 250 volunteers dedicating more than 600 hours of their time annually, our ability to provide services and resources to individuals in need is significantly impacted by their generosity.

JFCS volunteers contribute to our organization in numerous ways, including assembling and delivering meal kits to our clients, conducting supplies drives for our Just 3 Things Pantry, stocking and organizing donations, supporting special events, writing uplifting cards to homebound individuals, and assisting with virtual programming for older adults.

Every hour donated helps our organization strengthen the community by providing behavioral health, healthcare and social services to people right here in Maricopa County.

“Volunteering marks people with caring hearts,” says Lisa Blumstein, JFCS Volunteer Coordinator. “Thank you to our volunteers for generously giving yours to JFCS.”

To celebrate National Volunteer Month (April), here are six memorable moments with our remarkable volunteers throughout this past year:

Gay for Good, a dynamic organization dedicated to empowering LGBTQ+ individuals to champion diversity, nurture inclusion, and fortify communities, lent a helping hand at our Just 3 Things pantry.

Longtime volunteers Susan and Barry expertly assisted with the check-in process for our inaugural Puttin’ With a Purpose event.

JFCS volunteer Charlotte crafted heartfelt, homemade cards, which were delivered to homebound seniors in the community in celebration of Rosh Hashanah.

Risa, Joanne and Neil exemplify the spirit of our amazing volunteers who packed and delivered 225 food boxes, feeding over 800 of our clients on Thanksgiving.

The Valley of the Sun JCC’s Shemesh Day Camp visited our Just 3 Things pantry, lending their energy to efficiently organize and stack our generous donations.

Volunteers Joanne and Hope went above and beyond, ensuring our event readiness by assembling over 100 bags brimming with essential information and goodies for a JFCS special event.
