Volunteer-Group Opportunities

The power of teamwork can provide significant benefits to our community. Jewish Family Service offers several flexible options for employee and group volunteer projects.

Lunchbox Express

Help alleviate hunger in our community through this meaningful team building activity or service day opportunity. Ride our Lunchbox Express school buses and distribute nutritious free lunches to hungry children throughout the Denver metro area. Daily shifts available throughout June, July and August.

Lunchbox Express Book Drive

Feed children's minds by collecting new or slightly-used books for our Lunchbox Express program. Book donations can be made year-round.

“Hope is in the Bag” Food Drive

Our “Hope is in the Bag” program is an easy, turnkey way to hold a food drive. Bright green reusable shopping bags are provided for participants to fill with nonperishable food items. Instructions and the current most needed food items for our food pantry are attached to each bag.

Assistance for Refugees and People in Crisis

    • Purchase and pack full-sized toiletry and hygiene items in quart-sized bags.
    • Assemble nutrition packs for transitional clients with foods that can be eaten on the go.
