Start a Social Media Fundraiser
People like to give to people they know. Hosting a social media fundraiser is a quick and easy way to invite your family and friends to help you make an impact. Plus, 100% of donations go to JFCS! Here’s a guide on how to create your social media fundraiser.
Bring Food to JFCS Food Bank Locations
Our community faces an unprecedented need for food. You can add extra items to your grocery cart and drop them off in person, shop online and have them delivered to us, or purchase grocery store gift cards. Here are food drop-off locations and a list of needed items.
Make a Plan to Give This Season
Donations to JFCS will make lifesaving support possible for 120,000 people this year. Every gift counts! Plus, when you contribute before the end of the year, you could be eligible for a matching gift from your employer. Learn more about ways to make your gift now.
There are many ways to share your talents and time. Currently, volunteers are especially needed to pack groceries in our food banks, deliver food to the homebound, and make calls to isolated seniors. Get started by completing our brief volunteer application here.
