The JCCNV is an official SeniorNavigator site, with computers available for accessing the SeniorNavigator network, a statewide, nonprofit website designed to address health and aging concerns and provide information about the approximately 19,000 local programs and services available to seniors, their families and caregivers.
Visitors to the SeniorNavigator website simply type in a keyword, along with their zip code, city or county, to access services available right in their own neighborhoods.
The comprehensive service at www.seniornavigator.com lists sources for everything from where to get blood pressure screenings or flu shots to bone density tests or support groups to yoga classes. For more information, call Pam Wiener at 703.537.3061.

Are you looking for a truly enjoyable, enriching and rewarding experience? Join the J Volunteer Corps — there are so many ways to share your time and talents! Participate in the Mitzvah Corps’ monthly social-action projects, which are a great service to the community.
PERFORM A MITZVAH!
The J helps to feed the hungry every month at the Lamb Center in Fairfax. The first Tuesday of every month, members bring in casseroles which we deliver to the Lamb Center. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Carla.Rosenfeld@jccnv.org to be put on the Mitzvah list. There is no obligation to make a casserole every month, but if you are able to do so when convenient it would be a great help.
SOCIAL ACTION PROJECT:WE CONTINUE TO FEED THE HUNGRY
Food for Others needs canned and/or nonperishable foods. They especially need canned meats, chili, fruit, pastas, vegetables, and macaroni & cheese. If you are bringing something from your pantry, please check the expiration dates on all items. Remember to bring an item with you whenever you come to the J — let’s make sure that no one who lives in Northern Virginia goes to bed hungry! Thanks for your continued support.
