It’s “Call, Connect, Community” for Hundreds of Volunteers at Super Sunday on March 11

On March 11, 2018, the phones will ring out once again from the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County throughout the Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach areas. Hundreds of volunteers will be making calls to connect with thousands of community members during the annual Super Sunday phone-a-thon. They’ll be offering everyone the opportunity to join in Federation’s incredible work of seeing that, whenever and wherever our Jewish family needs us – from down the street to Israel and all across the globe - our community is there to help.

Raffle prizes, breakfast, snacks and great camaraderie will make the day fun for the volunteers, who are asked to sign up for shifts from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. or 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. The calling will take place in a transformed Zinman Hall on the Federation campus at 9901 Donna Klein Boulevard, Boca Raton. Newcomers and seasoned callers are most welcome, and training is available. Online RSVP is available at jewishboca.org/super.

“Call. Connect. Community” is a terrific theme for this year’s Super Sunday – a day of engaging our neighbors in conversation, educating them about our Federation’s critical work, and giving them the opportunity to make a difference,” said Jeff Shavitz, who is co-chairing the event with his wife, Jill, and with Susan and Eric Lebersfeld. “And with a $25,000 match from the Jacobson Jewish Community Foundation on all new or increased donations, volunteers can see the results of their efforts double.”

“Super Sunday is a way for everyone to make a difference,” said Jill Shavitz. “From volunteering to giving at any level, however one can help is important and deeply appreciated. From teens to seniors, everyone is encouraged and welcome to join us to help feed, protect, teach, inspire, save and comfort so many who need us. And teens from 9th grade up can receive community service hours.”

“The third in this season’s Federation Impact Days, Super Sunday is our single largest fund raising day of the year,” said Eric Lebersfeld. “There’s nothing like the feeling of individuals, couples, families and groups coming together from country clubs, agencies, synagogues and all across this Jewish community. This is what makes it possible for us to do all the good we do for our Jewish family.”

“Everyone we call on Super Sunday should realize they are so fortunate to live in a community that does so much good and that they, by simply making and fulfilling a pledge, can so easily be part of this great effort,” said Susan Lebersfeld. “If you can’t join us – be sure to answer the call on March 11. So many people depend on us – and YOU!”

Super Sunday is generously sponsored by Hotwire Communications. In-Kind Sponsors are Atlas Event Rental, FLIK Independent School Dining, and Zebedee Event Production. Everyone is invited to become a Telephone Sponsor at $100 per phone or twelve phones for $1,000.
