Join Jewish Relief Agency Philadelphia on Sunday, Nov. 14 for their Food Distribution! Grab a box, hop in line, and help pack boxes of food and critical household items for over 6,800 individuals in our community coping with food insecurity. Packing takes place at JRA’s warehouse in Northeast Philadelphia.
From 9 – 10 a.m., JRA hosts our youngest volunteers for its JRA Juniors program. Families with children under the age of 12 are invited to pack boxes of food using hand-carts to push down the assembly line at a pace that is kid-friendly.
Then from 10 – 11:30 a.m., it’s the main event. Join other volunteers from the community in packing boxes of food in a huge assembly line. Some volunteers will pass out food, while others carry boxes down the line. Two lines will be reserved for individuals who would prefer to pack individually with a cart.
Any time from 9 a.m – 2 p.m., volunteers are welcome to pick up a delivery route of items and distribute the packaged food to families in the community.
Not around on Sunday? Join us on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 11 – 12 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. to help pack boxes of food and critical household items for our recipients. These shifts are great for school, camp, or corporate groups to participate together! If you are interested in bringing your corporate group to JRA, please coordinate with Jenny Rubin, our volunteer program manager, at [email protected] On Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 15 – 16 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., volunteers can sign up to deliver food and other items to members of our community. Volunteers must have a car to participate in this opportunity. Volunteers may deliver to recipients in houses or apartment buildings, and will receive comprehensive delivery directions as well as instruction from a JRA staff member when they arrive.
