Update from the Boulder JCC
We are proud to live in a community where people are looking for ways to support one another and the agencies and businesses they love during this time. If there’s anything that this uncertain time proves to us, it’s what we already knew to be true in our hearts, that community is the foundation upon which we can all thrive and that community is what is going to get us through this time.
While we know that many agencies are working on more comprehensive solutions to address the current and potential needs in our community, we wanted to share some immediate opportunities to provide support.
Our community’s needs are varied. We have prepared a few options that are currently available to request assistance, volunteer, and/or donate. We will post all of these on our website and continue adding to the list as they become available.
- Community Food Share has prepared a Coronavirus Preparedness and Prevention page for those needing food and for those with the ability to donate or volunteer.
- BVSD has put an Emergency Food Distribution plan in place for the week of March 16.
- Impact on Education is helping coordinate volunteers for this effort. Learn more about volunteering.
- Visite la página de información sobre el plan de distribución de comida de emergencia.
- Connect with EFAA for assistance with basic needs or to get involved in supporting their efforts. Más información sobre los servicios de EFAA en español.
- Continue to support us, the Boulder JCC, and our ability to serve the community during this uncertain time.
Additionally, here are a few resources, articles, and other community information:
- Boulder County has declared local disaster emergency to allow for access to additional local, state, and federal resources for Boulder County
- A local psychiatrist has helpful tips regarding anxiety during this time
- TIME has prepared helpful tips about working remotely and staying productive.
We are committed to creating the community bonds that will sustain us during this time of uncertainty. We will be sending more information about virtual offerings from our early childhood center and program team very soon. We hosted our first family-friendly Shabbat Sing virtually. Watch it on Facebook.
If you have any suggestions about what you would like to see, please send an email to Nancy Lipsey, Senior Director of Programs.
If there are any specific needs you have, please let us know and cc Nancy Lipsey. We will continue to collect community resources during this time and want to ensure they are relevant to your needs.
