Volunteer with IMPACT to brainstorm new ways to put out the welcome mat


Children from the JCC preschool learn about the new educational garden as part of their Week of Kindness with IMPACT volunteers Ilana Goldenberg and Danielle Halevi (background). Among the tasks the IMPACT group completed was painting the planters in the garden.

Among the tasks the IMPACT group completed was painting the planters in the garden. The Volunteer with IMPACT group is about to embark on a project for the Tampa Jewish Federation to re-imagine how newcomers are welcomed into the Tampa Jewish community.

The group will meet monthly, beginning in the spring, to design the newcomers’ program and work with the Federation to bring it to fruition.

Volunteer with IMPACT is an initiative for young adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s to get involved and make a difference in the local community.

The Tampa Jewish Federation’s first Volunteer with IMPACT group formed last fall and worked with Sweetwater Organic Community Farm. The group worked weekly to maintain the farm’s nature trails, which are used as educational teaching tools for local school children who visit the farm on field trips.

At the end of the project, the group met with JCC preschoolers as part of the school’s Week of Kindness, shared with them why they volunteer and gave them a tour of their completed project.

Anyone interested in volunteering for the spring project can sign up at jewishtampa.com/impactvolunteer.
