IMPACT! Volunteers spend a day lending a hand at the Ronald McDonald House.

Giving of yourself – it’s one of the biggest mitzvot (good deeds) you can do. Volunteers can give their time through ‘Done in a Day’ opportunities.

IMPACT! Done in a Day Volunteer Opportunities match a volunteer’s interest to help with a community need that is personally meaningful. This individualized approach assures the best experience for volunteers and connects them directly to the mitzvah of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

“I think when you get a taste of what is out there, it draws you in to looking for the next opportunity to volunteer,” volunteer Laura Salkin said.

IMPACT! and the Federation's Jewish Volunteer Network (JVN) offer a variety of opportunities to participate throughout the community including sorting books for children in need at the Kids' Book Bank, distributing produce at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, and helping stock shelves and sort clothing at the Cleveland Chesed Center.

“There’s flexibility and many options based on your interests, availability and required activity needed," volunteer Marci Garson said. “I come in with a good attitude – and leave with an even better one. I know I’m making a difference, and that keeps me coming back for more.”
