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.

Turkey Drive for Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach
We are collecting turkeys for the Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach.

The Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach's mission is simple: to feed people in need regardless of their circumstances. The Soup Kitchen provides healthy and nutritious meals to all who come through our doors. We are committed to improving the quality of life and restoring the dignity of those we serve when providing a hot meal to any member of our community in need of one. Our vision is to assure that no one goes hungry, that no food is wasted in our community and no one is denied the opportunity or assistance to become self-sufficient.

Sunday, November 18 | 12:30-2:00pm
Mandel JCC, Boynton Beach

*We will also be collecting Publix gift cards prior to November 18 in the Children & Camp Office
