Boulder JFS Seeks Friendly Visitor Volunteers
Jewish Family Service
November 28, 2018
Give yourself and an older adult in the Boulder area a gift by becoming a Friendly Visitor volunteer through Boulder Jewish Family Service (JFS)! As a Friendly Visitor, you offer the best gift you can give another: friendship.
We individually match you with an older adult to provide companionship. Friendly Visitors and the older adults they visit spend time together in a variety of ways: take walks, run errands, visit in the elder’s home, or do whatever the person enjoys most and needs help with. Many times they get to know each other’s families and become great friends. We ask for a minimum commitment of six months.
Contact Ingrid Swords at Boulder JFS. 720.749.3403 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
JEWISHcolorado Board Chair Rob Kaufmann and Interim President and CEO Renée Rockford were among 30 Federation leaders representing communities across the United States and Canada who took part in an extraordinary, 24-hour visit to Israel to express their concerns with Israeli leaders on the proposed judicial reforms and to convey the implications these changes will have on the North American Jewish community.
On March 6 and 7, the Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center (JCC Denver) will host its annual crowdfunding fundraiser called Tzedakah 4 Kids (T4K). T4K is a two-day long effort to raise money for the Robert E. Loup Scholarship Fund.
