The needs in our Northern Virginia community are only increasing. That is why J-Rides, a member of the NV Rides family, is currently expanding its services to provide help where it is needed the most. Volunteers can help with:
- Contactless food deliveries from local food banks
- Grocery shopping and pharmacy pickup for homebound older adults
- Daily check-in calls for isolated seniors
J-Rides serves communities throughout Northern VA. They send out all of the requests to the driver “pool” and people can then self-select the opportunities that work with their schedule/geography.
J-Rides can only expand its crucial work by enlisting more dedicated volunteers. As a Jewish community we are coming together during the COVID-19 crisis to offer support to vulnerable members of our community. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-537-3070 to learn more and to sign up to drive.
NV Rides is a program of the Pozez Jewish Community Center, with support from the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington and Fairfax County.
