DofE / Yoni Jesner Award Opportunities

GIFT cards and posters

1. Get creative!

This is a weekly opportunity to spread smiles amongst the residents of the JewishCare home. Create a poster or piece of hangable art to brighten the hallways of the home.

Choose a theme: Current Jewish festival (e.g. Purim, Pesach, Shavuot etc), Season (Winter, Autumn etc), Positive quotes (view example templates), weekly Parsha.

Charity baked goods donations

2. Delicious baked goods for the homeless

Deliver your baked goods every Wednesday to the GIFT Giving Hub and they will be distributed to the homeless during the week by a charity we have teamed up with. Alternatively give them out to any local homeless people and send us an image for us to log for your DofE hours. * Please make sure each item is individually portioned and labelled with the date it was baked and if the ingredients include nuts or dairy. Make this a little more personal by adding a card/ your name. The charity would also appreciate any toiletries if you would like to add to this to your drop off.

Sign up here


Please drop off to GIFT Giving Hub 61 - 63 Watford Way, London NW4 3AX weekly, anytime on a Wednesday, in order for your items to be included in the weeks drop off. Please email volunteer@jgift.org if you have any questions.
