Jewish Cleveland IMPACT! Volunteers are spending two weeks in Cleveland's sister city of Beit Shean, Israel, volunteering in the community and immersing themselves in Israeli culture. Check out photos and blogs from their experience below:
Right after Margy Weinberg retired, she sat down and thought about how she could help people who needed it the most. While helping children learn was her initial focus, she has added a range of other volunteer endeavors to her retired life.
We, at Federation, are committed to caring for those in need. And, through the IMPACT! initiative, volunteers ages 50+ can help meet those needs in many different ways. InMotion is a nonprofit center devoted to the health and well-being of those affected by Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders.
A meaningful way to start the day! The room was buzzing with energy and excitement as Jewish Clevelanders filled the room on Sunday morning for the IMPACT! Volunteer Showcase, a highly anticipated volunteer fair for adults ages 50 and over.
The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announces the IMPACT! Volunteer Showcase, a highly anticipated volunteer fair for Jewish Cleveland adults ages 50 and over. The Showcase will feature more than 20 organizations seeking volunteers, making it easy for guests to identify a possible match for their interests. The Showcase takes place on Sunday, January 22 from 9:30 – 11:00 am at the Federation’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building (25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood).
Share the warmth of the holiday by donating new gifts to children and families in need. The Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Chanukah in a Basket program is collecting items to be distributed to local community members experiencing financial distress. For many children, these gifts may be the only gifts they receive this season.
