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.

• 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.
