A Volunteer Program That FITS Your Family

A Volunteer Program That FITS Your Family


If you are a community-minded parent looking for ways your children can “give back,” you might have noticed a scarcity of such activities, especially if they are under the age of 12. You also wouldn’t be alone in your quest. JF&CS has received a lot of inquiries from parents of youngsters over the past few years. And now, we have the answer.

Volunteering with Kids

No matter what your age, volunteering in your community has untold benefits. A commitment to giving back is one of the most precious gifts you can give the next generation. When you start volunteering at a young age, there’s even more time for the benefits to accumulate.

JF&CS is thankful to have such a jewel as an active volunteer. Ann recently sat down with our marketing team to chat about her volunteer work and what it means to her.

Why Mentor?

Why Mentor?

In the United States, “local” is in. Think about it – we’re dining at restaurants serving ingredients from local farms and purveyors, we’re creating coworking communities for budding entrepreneurs to launch businesses in our cities, and, in the global sense of “local,” we are supporting a resurgence in manufacturing of goods that are produced in the United States.

Volunteer of the Month: Abby Rosenthal

Volunteer of the Month: Abby Rosenthal

Abby Rosenthal’s career has taken her to many places. The native New Yorker has lived in various cities across the country and worked for prestigious organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control, City of Detroit Health Department and the University of Michigan. Before beginning a career in public health, Abby was a physical therapist and had the opportunity to work closely with older adults. She also was a caregiver for both of her parents as they were aging and used her professional knowledge to provide them with the best possible care. When she decided to retire two and a half years ago, she knew she wanted to make sure her expertise would be put to good use. Once she heard about Aviv Older Adult Services – Tools for Aging, she gave JF&CS a call to find out how she could become involved.
