Mitzvah Missions


Are you interested in supporting the Miami Valley? Join Jewish Family Services for a Mitzvah Mission! Throughout the year, JFS:

  • Partners with the JCC’s Early Childhood Program to take children to local independent and assisted living facilities for snacks, crafts and good fun.
  • Partners with other agencies of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton and Jewish organizations across Dayton to collect needed items for community organizations that provide vital resources to all in the Miami Valley. As a community, we have collected items for Artemis Center, Homefull, Dayton Children’s Hospital, Care House, The Dayton Foodbank, Clothes that Work, and more!
  • Involves the community in creating senior holiday outreach cards and bags for Rosh Hashanah, Purim, and Chanukah.
  • Hosts a December 25th Mitzvah Mission to make sack lunches, scarves, and ragdolls for St. Vincent de Paul.
