Annual Milk & Honey Food Distribution Event Sept 18th

In the spirit of Rosh Hashanah, we hope you and your family will begin the year 5772 with a mitzvah that is meaningful to you and critical to nearly 500 frail, homebound elderly and others in need. Help deliver traditional kosher food baskets to the most vulnerable among us – and share the flavor of the holiday.

State law now requires that all adult volunteers providing this type of service to seniors undergo background screening including fingerprinting.  Because JCS wants to maintain our community’s tradition of personally delivered holiday packages to frail seniors,
we have arranged screening opportunities on three dates:

Wednesday, July 27    5-6:30 p.m.   Greater Miami Jewish Federation,
                                                           4200 Biscayne Blvd., Miami
Thursday, July 28       6-8 p.m.         JCS Aventura Office, 18999 Biscayne Blvd.
                                                           Suite 200 (Loehmann’s Plaza)
Monday, Aug. 8           5-7 p.m.         Temple Beth Am, 5950 SW 88 Street, Miami

Be part of this mitzvah! Kindly contact JCS Volunteer Coordinator Barbara Davis at 786.866.2206or to schedule an appointment. This background check will enable you to volunteer for any JCS activity for five years.

The cost of the screening is $52. So that all funds raised through the Milk & Honey campaign can be used to serve our clients, we ask that you absorb this expense and apologize for any inconvenience.

We hope you agree this is a small price to pay for such a large amount of Milk and Honey for our community’s seniors.  We thank you for your commitment to JCS and wish you and your family a ‘Sweet 5772.’
