JFS sixth formers Give It Forward to the Homeless

21/05/19JFS sixth formers Give It Forward to the Homeless

Together with Charity GIFT, JFS sixth formers spent the afternoon giving out sandwiches and food  to the homeless in central London.

This was part of the GIFT ‘Time to Give’ recreation programme where students in year 12 spend an afternoon every fortnight volunteering or learning life skills in order to help them become better givers. Shira Joseph, GIFT educator and the brainchild behind the initiative, explained  “This trip was the finale of a great volunteering course. It was much more than just giving out food to those on the streets, students were able to put their empathy and listening skills to good use and connect with those they were giving the food to.”

"The greatest gift you can give someone is your time, because when you give your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back"
