Volunteer

Shorefront Jewish Community Council would not be able to provide all of our programs without the help of amazing volunteers. If you are looking for an exciting opportunity to give back please reach out to Liba Shakhman at 718-743-0575 ext. 7503.

We always need help at our food pantry, in our office doing clerical work or delivering food packages to needy clients.

 

I arrived in the United States in 1998. I came to SJCC because I was told they would be able to help me settle in the United States. My case worker noticed that I did not have a lot going on and did not have many friends or family in the United States. I was asked if I wanted to volunteer in the food pantry. That was the beginning of my 20 year journey as a volunteer at SJCC. Today I sit at the front desk at SJCC every day as a receptionist. This gives me the opportunity to be around interesting people and make friends. I am grateful to SJCC for the opportunities it has given me as a client and a volunteer.
