There’s Something About This Community (and that’s you)!

The JCC Cares program is an opportunity for you to enhance your community experience and connection by taking the time to participate in a community service project, whether remotely or directly. The basic American concept of community service is closely tied to the basic Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), which urges us to make a difference in the lives of others who may be less fortunate than ourselves. Partner with us in caring for our community in whatever capacity you can.
