HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

JRA's work is fueled by volunteers of many ages and backgrounds - from students to seniors, Jews and non-Jews - all united by a common commitment to help those in need to strengthen our community. Through community service, JRA nourishes body and soul.

DESCRIPTION

Every month volunteers pack and deliver boxes of nutritious kosher food to low-income individuals and families in Greater Philadelphia. Volunteers can register in advance to pack and/or deliver. For deliveries, individuals pick up the packed boxes, along with select additional items, from our warehouse in Northeast Philadelphia and follow a "route packet" of directions to recipient homes.
