JCC Cares

Our Mission

Help us bring our community together. The JCC’s Social Action Team thrives on instilling Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Gemilut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Please join JCC Cares at one of our next upcoming events: together we can make a difference in the lives of others who may be less fortunate than ourselves. Volunteer projects will be geared towards ages 2-200. Families with young children, tweens, teens, young adults and older adults are all welcome.


Mitzvah Of the Month

Diaper Drive for Junior League of Boca Raton Diaper Bank

Did you know…

• Low-income parents cannot take advantage of free or subsidized childcare if they cannot afford to leave disposable diapers at childcare centers.
• 1 out of 3 families struggle to buy diapers.
• In low-income families, a baby can spend a day or longer in one diaper, leading potential health and abuse risks.
• An adequate supply of diapers can cost over $100 per month.
• Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers require about 8.
• Without transportation, lower income families tend to buy diapers at convenience stores rather than a large retailer which can double or triple the monthly cost for diapers.
• Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps, and are classified with cigarettes, alcohol and pet food as disallowed purchases.

We need your help!


Collection Boxes can be found in the preschool lobby and at the front desk from February 1-28
