Volunteers Needed for Boulder JFS Hanukkah Celebrations

Boulder Meridian Hanukkah 2013

Boulder Jewish Family Service (JFS) is hosting Hanukkah celebrations at eight local senior communities in December. We would love for you and your families to join us to help make the holiday bright for older adults in our community. We need help with set-up and clean-up, and it is particularly meaningful if volunteers can sit and visit with residents. For set-up, we need people to arrive an hour early.

Please contact Ingrid Swords, Boulder JFS volunteer coordinator, at 303.415.1025 or iswords@jewishfamilyservice.org for more details, addresses, and to RSVP for any of the celebrations below.
