Jewish Family Service is very excited
about a new program it is sponsoring,
Project Mitzvah. The goal of Project
Mitzvah is to reduce the level of isolation
many older adults experience by connect-
ing them with individuals, families and/or
organizations who are interested in
enhancing the quality of their own life
while bringing joy to the life of an older
adult.
Project Mitzvah allows individuals,
families and/or organizations to partici-
pate in a variety of volunteer activities
that do not require large blocks of time.
There are many areas in which volunteers
can greatly enhance the quality of life of
an older adult: friendly visiting, the cele-
bration of holidays with nursing home
residents and telephone reassurance.
Project Mitzvah is seeking pledges for
12, 18 or 36 (or more!) hours of volunteer
service during 1994.
For more information, please contact
Elina Zilberberg, JFS/RS Volunteer
Services Program Manager at 559-1500.
