COVID-19 Update

All Volunteering & Events Postponed Until July

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent coronavirus. We are sending prayers and good vibes to all of the patients at our hospital partners and those hurt by this outbreak. We will continue to do our best to provide positive content and share the best ways you can help during this unprecedented time.

Our Mission

We’re a NYC-based volunteer network for young urban professionals passionate about giving back to our community. 


“The JDJ Foundation has been like a family, and families work together to help others. Volunteering during the holidays with the Loving Heart Society, a part of the JDJ family, helped me truly understand the impact that volunteering has on families and communities in need.”

-Liana W.

“Finding a volunteer platform in the city that is easily accessible is hard enough as it is. With JDJ, they make it easy, and you see your volunteer hours and donations put to work right away.”

-Matt D.

“JDJ does an amazing job of organizing events centered around bettering our community and connecting with like-minded individuals with the goal of helping others in need.” 

-William G.

"I’ve had a wonderful time volunteering with LHS. Not only have I felt rewarded by helping those in need, I have been rewarded by working alongside other great volunteers."

-Lauren P.

“JDJ has done a tremendous job offering unique volunteer opportunities to young professionals in the NYC area. Whether it’s renovating homes for families in need or funding cutting-edge rare cancer research, it has been amazing to see JDJ have such a tangible impact in peoples’ lives” 

-John H.
