JFSNJ seeking meal volunteers

Jewish Family Service of North Jersey needs volunteers for its Kosher Meals on Wheels delivery and Friendly Visitors programs for the homebound.

Volunteers are needed to deliver hot kosher meals one or two days a week in Fair Lawn, Elmwood Park, and Wayne to isolated seniors and those with disabilities who are unable to do their own cooking and shopping.

All meals are picked up at JFSNJ’s office at 17-10 River Road in Fair Lawn at noon, Mondays through Thursdays, and at 11:30 a.m. on Fridays.

The routes take about one to one and a half hours from the time the meals are picked up. Substitute drivers are also needed.

Friendly Visitors volunteers provide weekly visits to JFSNJ’s homebound clients who would benefit from companionship, socialization, and connection with a caring community member.

Jewish Family Service of North Jersey is a nonprofit, nonsectarian family service agency assisting members of the community in coping with life’s challenges. For information, call Melanie Lester at (973) 595-0111 or email her at mlester@jfsnorthjersey.org.
