JOIN OUR EVENTS

One of Federation’s core missions is to help those in need. The Volunteer Center offers individuals and families meaningful opportunities to participate in Tikkun Olam initiatives.  There are opportunities through the year that all are welcome to participate in so together we will strengthen the community.   

UPCOMING EVENTS
SUPPLIES FOR SUCCESS

Every child should start school on the right foot!!  Prior to the start of the school year, Federation’s Supplies for Success program provides thousands of students with brand new backpacks and school supplies – all assembled by committed volunteers. Working with community partners in the broader community, backpacks are distributed to economically disadvantaged students in northern New Jersey.

MITZVAH DAY ON THE MOVE

Federation’s Mitzvah Day on the Move has been in one of our hallmark events for decades. Every year, Federation identifies unmet needs in the community and provides volunteer opportunities for those needs to be met. Volunteers select from a myriad of projects that may help isolated seniors, the homeless, vulnerable women and children, disadvantaged adults and many more. Mitzvah Day has always been a fun, family event – not to be missed!

MARCH MEGA FOOD DRIVE

Food insecurity is a growing problem in our community. Federation is very committed to fighting hunger and the March Mega Food Drive is our largest event. Volunteers come together and maximize their collective efforts to fight hunger in the area.  Through food collection sites, non-perishable food donations, and snack packs for food insecure children, every year thousands of pounds of food are donated to local food pantries. In 2020, 20,000 lbs of food was distributed!!!

LIVING WITH PURPOSE

Live With Purpose is our special ongoing program that offers volunteer opportunities throughout the year for individuals and families ready to help with needs that emerge in our community.

“The Volunteer Center at Federation has brought my family closer together and provided a way for my husband and I to show our kids that we can do great things for our community."
