JABA Volunteer Opportunities – January 2015

In honor of the MLK Day of Service in January, JABA is holding a non-perishable food drive “Soup for Seniors” to benefit JABA’s Food Bag Program & the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, running now until January 19th.You can help by donating nonperishable food items. Especially needed are: canned meat products such as stew, chicken or ham; shelf-stable milk; no-sugar added canned fruits; dried fruits; lower salt soups and vegetables. Donations can be dropped off at JABA at 674 Hillsdale Drive or in specially marked boxes around the community.

A new year = new needs & new training dates. We’re now identifying individuals to volunteer as a Volunteer Ombudsman, school-based mentor or student assistant, or as a friendly visitor or transportation provider to an older adult in the community.

Contact Carleigh Showalter for more information about these programs at cshowalter@jabacares.org or (434) 817-5226.
