Teens Connect through J-Serve and Help Local Causes

On Sunday April 14, 37 teen volunteers with J-Serve, a Jewish volunteer organization, helped at Furkids by cleaning out their new space in Cumming, GA.  

I helped move branches and bamboo that will eventually turn into wood chips. I wanted to go to this project because I enjoy volunteering and helping out the community. I also love helping out the animal community. Here are a few others who helped on Sunday, too.

VOX is partnering with the Marcus Jewish Community Center to support youth reporters in the Maccabi Games summer program. The Maccabi Games is an international sporting and community-building event that will bring more than 1,600 people to Atlanta July 28-Aug. 2. We’re excited to share some of their stories along the way.
