WE'RE HERE TO HELP

We at The Jewish Discovery Center understand the high level of concern surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. As an organization, we are implementing proactive procedures to ensure the safety of our community.  

In addition to the protective measures, we are mounting a proactive effort to provide our community with support, The Jewish Discovery Center will be available to deliver food and supplies and make welfare checks for those in need.

If you or someone you know is in need of help, please  fill out this form to get help and we will contact you. It may take us a few days to respond and to gather the resources needed to help each individual and family but we will be working tirelessly to ensure the safety of our community.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Volunteers are needed to help with delivering food & supplies, making welfare checks, running errands, and packing care packages. We are also looking for nursing assistance and for volunteers who can help with babysitting.
