​Volunteer JRA Chicago

​The Jewish Relief Agency is a dynamic, volunteer-driven organization. We depend upon the help of dedicated volunteers and the financial support of individuals, foundations and businesses. Here are some ways YOU can get involved:

Volunteer at a food distribution:  


-Fulfill your community service requirements for school or work.
-Bring a group of friends to a distribution.
-Join colleagues from your workplace for a day of Community Giving.
-Celebrate a family simcha — birthday, anniversary, graduation — with a day of service at JRA.


Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds meet as a community to

pack non-perishable kosher food, load their cars with boxes, and

deliver food and a smile into the homes of those in need. 


We hope you’ll join us in doing this important mitzvah!

We meet at 11:00 am one Sunday each month at:

The Living Room Chabad of Bucktown & Wicker Park
1630 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago, IL 60647
