Home   How You Can Help   Volunteer


JFSRI offers many ways to help by volunteering. You can make a big difference with only a few hours of your time.

Kosher Meals on Wheels DriversVolunteer for Jewish Family Service

Drivers are needed in the Cranston/Warwick and Providence/Pawtucket communities to deliver hot kosher meals to homebound elderly or disabled individuals through the JFSRI Kosher Meals on Wheels program. Volunteers can choose to deliver meals on one or more days of the week, Monday through Friday. The commitment is only a few hours. Substitute drivers are also needed to fill in occasionally for our regular volunteers.

Kosher Senior Café Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help serve meals and to clean up at the Kosher Senior Café in Warwick and Providence. Fridays are especially busy with the celebration of Shabbat, but help is needed Monday through Thursday as well.

Partners in Care Volunteers

Partners in Care is a, volunteer driven, caregiver respite program, and without the support and volunteers from our community members we cannot help the many families who are in need of these services. What does volunteer service with us look like? It looks a lot like friendship!  In fact, that’s often what it becomes. Volunteers provide companionship to seniors; share stories, play cards, watch movies, go for drives, etc. They could also help run errands and provide transportation. Click here for more information

LifeLine RI Machine Maintenance

Volunteers are needed statewide to make routine battery changes, exchange help buttons, and pick up equipment from clients who are no longer on the program. Maintenance volunteers can complete the work on their own schedules during a given time period. Training is provided.

Committees and Special Projects

Occasionally we have special projects or administrative work that volunteers can help with. If you have experience in a particular area, you may be able to help us with a project, like writing an article for our newsletter, taking photos at our events, or serving on one of our committees.
