Toronto Section's executive historically incorporated five or six vice-presidents, each in charge of a portfolio made up of a group of related committees. The service portfolio has been a cornerstone of Toronto Section throughout its existence. This portfolio's early progressive programs included the Jewish Girls' Club and Camp Camperdown, and later evolved into a blood donor drive, ESL programs, nursery, and aid to seniors and the disabled. In the 1960s they began to operate as a clearing-house for Jewish commmunity volunteers.
