The National Council of Jewish Women—Greater Detroit Section is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, they strive for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children and families and by protecting individual rights and freedoms. The Greater Detroit Section has 1,500 volunteer members helping residents, including the following for older adults: daily Meals on Wheels deliveries and bus services to doctor appointments, local museums and supermarkets. They also record, transcribe and mail the Jewish news to 20 visually impaired seniors on a biweekly basis. All services to older adults are free through contributions and fundraising projects.
