It’s Here! Our 5th Annual Mensches & Mimosas with a Twist

We are delighted to once again partner with our Jewish community organizations for our 5th Annual Mensches & Mimosas, but with a twist. This year, we’re featuring our 31 more honorees throughout April (National Volunteer Month) on our website and socials (Facebook and Instagram). Come and watch videos about what inspired them to volunteer.
 

We encourage you to make a tribute gift to JFS in honor of your favorite mensch(en). Donate online here or call 518-516-1102.

Proceeds help support and grow the free services we provide to our community.
