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.  J-Serve members connect with each other just like they will at the Maccabi Games this summer.  

I helped pick up trash and clean the new property. I also had to help move branches and bamboo that will eventually turn into wood chips. I wanted to go because I enjoy volunteering and helping out the community. I also love helping out the animal community.
