Social Action

Upcoming (Zoom) Meeting - Social Action Committee - March 3, 6:30 PM
Email Eric Cooper-Ginsburg for information  


There are many ways to assist, and the areas of focus for SATO this winter and spring
are going to be vaccination assistance and food security.

It's important to keep in mind that you can help us from the comfort of your own home! If you're not comfortable driving others in your vehicle, or venturing out to the grocery store, there is still a great need for making phone calls and navigating vaccine websites.  Many of our volunteers are assisting remotely - it could just be a matter of waiting on hold for 30 minutes while you walk the dog or navigate a website while watching your favorite TV show!



Notes from last month's meeting:

We invited Lisa Gally, Director of Essential Services for Jewish Family Services, to speak about the various volunteering opportunities available including:

1) JFS is the only Kosher Meals on Wheels provider in the Capital Region and needs volunteers to deliver meals.

2) JFS grocery shops for people who are unable or uncomfortable going into a grocery store.  They only shop at Price Chopper.  

3) JFS assists the Shalom Food Pantry and distributes bags with produce, dairy and shelf stable items to those in need.

4)  JFS helps transport seniors over 60 who are Jewish.  The volunteers drive their own cars
