This week’s #ServiceSpotlight is on the Jewish Volunteer Connection, a program of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore. JVC has been one of our strongest volunteer partners for the past few years. From helping us organize volunteers for our last MLK Day of Service to providing 40 volunteers on their Good Deeds Day in March, to many, many other projects, it is hard to imagine where we would be without their support. It has been awesome working with Baltimore’s Jewish community to say the least. Thank you for your service, JVC!
