Volunteer With UJA!

Covid has precipitated a financial, social, and mental health crisis. With Passover quickly approaching, the need for food and other assistance is amplified. Our greatest source of resilience has always been each other so this holiday season, join us in helping New Yorkers get back on their feet.

 

Our nonprofit partners are organizing both virtual and in-person opportunities - including some uniquely Passover ones - for essential services to meet ongoing needs. Volunteer opportunities include packaging and delivering food boxes for the hungry, sending gifts to children in need, and creating handmade cards for isolated seniors.

 

Browse the ongoing volunteer opportunities below, and let's work together to meet the needs of our community.

 

UJA has asked its nonprofit partners to confirm that all service projects comply with government rules, regulations, and safety guidelines.
