A sold out house! Thank you to the 400+ community members who filled the room with energy and excitement at the launch of IMPACT!, our new volunteer initiative designed for Baby Boomers looking to use their skills, passion, and leadership to make a difference in people's lives.
Shalom! My name is Kyla Epstein Schneider. I volunteer with the Federation because I believe we are all in this together. And, through Federation, we can plan for our community’s future. We can be prepared.
Hello, my name is Larry Mack. I’ve been a campaigner for a long time. It’s really important to me. Sometimes there are no words for how it makes me feel – to know that I can help.
A very special thanks our Campaign Closing speakers! Kyla Epstein Schneider, Jordan Berkowitz, Nicolle Simonovic, and Larry Mack shared their personal, powerful stories of why they give and why they volunteer.
Thank you Dan Zelman, 2015 & 2016 General Campaign Chair, for inspiring us to reach new heights!
