HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

JRA packs and delivers boxes of nutritious, kosher food, and every day household items to low-income families and individuals in the Philadelphia area. B'nai Mitzvah Program participants engage hands-on in the community by volunteering with JRA for at least 10 hours through food packing, food delivery, food and toiletry collection, and Caring Card creation. 

DESCRIPTION
