Project 5 is a volunteer transportation service that takes Jewish seniors where they want to go, but it’s more than just a ride. Inspired by the 5th Commandment, honor thy father and mother, volunteers help seniors in the Capital Region maintain their independence by driving them where they need to go: medical and dental appointments, shopping and errands, religious services, cultural and social events, luncheons with friends…
Volunteer for Project 5: Get to know our most valued community members…our seniors. You can choose your own hours and how often you want to volunteer, get reimbursed for mileage, and receive valuable training.
For more information about volunteering or for more information about how to arrange for transportation, please contact Jewish Family Service/Project 5 at 518-482-8856 or email
