Our Community Services

Our Community Services

We take great pride in our many community service projects. During the holiday season, we organize food drives in which hundreds of bags of groceries are collected and donated to local agencies, such as the Hispanic Brotherhood, the food banks at the Vineyard and St. Anthony’s Churches and Central Synagogue, St Agnes Outreach, Rosa Lee Young Childhood Center, Rockville Centre Recreation Center, and the Martin Luther King Center.

Other projects include clothing, books, and school supply drives to support community not-for-profit agencies like those noted above and the Back2School store. We have helped staff the Family Court Children’s Center in Nassau County with volunteers and contribute to the participants as needs arise.  Our longstanding tutor and mentoring program at Freeport’s Archer Street Elementary has helped hundreds of students who need a little extra support and attention.  The NCJW annual community Chanukah Party delights and entertains children while collecting toys that are later distributed to local children in need.

One of our signature community service programs is our twice-a-week Senior Club, now in its 63rd year at the RVC Recreation Center. There, over 200 older adults enjoy a number of weekly activities including the very popular duplicate bridge program.                                                                                                                           

Each April we prepare Mother’s Day gift bags for women in need. They are filled with personal care products and our members deliver them to such places as the South Nassau Communities Hospital Family Clinic, the Safe Center serving victims of domestic violence or child abuse, and Bethany House, a temporary residence for homeless women and children.
