Most people who celebrate Christmas want to be with family for the holiday, and for more than 40 years the Jewish Community has helped to make that happen. JFS continues this wonderful tradition which enables volunteers from Greensboro’s Jewish community help fill in for Christian employees and volunteers on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at Moses Cone and Wesley Long Hospitals.
Tammie Geier, who volunteered at Moses Cone Hospital last year, said, “It was an amazing experience and enormously fulfilling. It was great to have an opportunity that involved our entire family and helped reinforce the importance of service to the community. It was also very nice to know we were making it possible for regular volunteers to spend time with their families during the holiday season.”
Volunteers serve in many varied capacities: providing information at the front desk, assisting in the kitchen and cafeteria, delivering food trays to patient rooms, running the gift shop and, new this year, working in the emergency department as part of the concierge service.
If you and your family would like to experience the satisfaction and fun of working in the hospitals during these holidays, please sign up using the links above or email David Frazier, Jewish Family Services Volunteer Coordinator. For questions, please call David at (336) 852-4829 x227.
When disaster first strikes, immediate aid is needed to help communities get back on their feet. Afterwards, rebuilding and strengthening resilience can take years.
In the days after Hurricane Florence, Jewish Federations sprang into action to raise funds for the impacted communities. And we’re still here—helping make sure that the urgent needs of the most severely impacted are met.
