JFS Champs for Change

Families Doing Good Together

Come as a family, leave as a community.

JFS Champs for Change is a quarterly volunteer event series for families with elementary school-aged children who want to give back together. Each opportunity will focus on a different impact area within JFS – from older adults to refugees to families living in their cars. It’s a great way to introduce volunteerism to your children through family-friendly activities that make a direct and positive impact on your fellow San Diegans. Have fun, meet other families, and support our community! Childcare for young children will be provided on site.

Our next upcoming event:

Hand Up Food Pantry

Volunteer as a family to help us fight food insecurity in San Diego! You’ll go behind-the-scenes of the Hand Up Food Pantry, sort through donations collected from our High Holy Days Food Drive, prepare the pantry for monthly distributions, and make greeting cards for our clients who shop at the Corner Market.

We have a cap of 76 volunteers for this event. Register today before this fun family opportunity fills up!
