VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The Temple firmly believes that being an active member of the community is the best way to make a difference.

The following organizations represent volunteer opportunities for all ages. 

FEATURED VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Zaban Paradies Center (ZPC)
We are excited to announce the ZPC will open its doors to residents and volunteers on Wednesday, September 15. We will be hosting 15 couples at ZPC for the Residential Services Program. Volunteers are a huge help with our meals! They provide lunches three days a week and dinner six days a week. Last year, together we provided over 3000 lunches and over 6000 dinners to the 48 couples we served. As we move forward with the new season, we are looking forward to welcoming new and returning providers.

Read below about how to get involved:
Lunch:
Providers bring brown bag lunches on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, September 15 to May 13. If you would like to be a lunch provider, please sign up via the Signup Genius link at the bottom of this article. Lunches are dropped off between 10 am and 4 pm. Lunch suggestions are detailed in the link.
 
Dinner Provider/Server:
Dinner providers bring meals Saturday - Thursday beginning September 15 - May 15 for up to 35 people. There are opportunities to provide meals on special occasions and holidays. This year we are returning to the option of on-site onsite meal servers. Dinner providers and servers are coordinated by Bea Feiman and Bobbi Wilson. Please see their info below.
 
Volunteer Coordinator: 
Volunteer Coordinators assist dinner meal servers. They orient volunteers to our facility and the needs of our clients. They also facilitate the dinner service from start to finish. Coordinators can sign up via the Sign-Up Genius link below. Volunteer Coordinators are needed from Saturday - Thursday, September 15 – May 15. Training will be scheduled for anyone interested in this opportunity.

As COVID is still with us, the health and safety of all our clients, volunteers, and employees remain a high priority. Zaban Paradies Center is following CDC’s COVID-19 guidance for shared housing communities to prevent the spread of COVID. All staff, volunteers, Day Services clients, and residents will participate in temperature checks, wear a mask covering when in shared areas of the facility, and maintain social distancing to slow and stop the spread of the virus.  
 
Thank you for your willingness to help. We look forward to collaborating with you to serve the needs of our residents. Feel free to share with family, friends, and coworkers the word about Zaban Paradies Center and the opportunities to volunteer and contribute to our mission!
