The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland is recruiting volunteers to make calls from 10 am to noon, Nov. 13, for Virtual Super Sunday. This annual event raises funds for the Jewish Federation’s vital work that makes a difference in our local Jewish community, in Israel and around the world.
“Super Sunday is an event I look forward to every year,” says Jessica Zutz Hilbert, JFGP’s 2023 Campaign Chair. “I have really enjoyed getting to have one-on-one conversations with members of the community to hear about their involvement and priorities. It’s also particularly fun to approach the day as a true team effort with so many of us working toward the same goal at the same time.”
Super Sunday raises funds for the Federation’s Campaign for Community Needs, which supports the network of organizations that make the metro Jewish community vibrant and strong.
“I feel particularly excited about this year, as we can truly begin to put the pandemic behind us and focus on the next incredible 100 years for the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland,” says Jessica.
For at least half of its 100-year history, the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland has used phonathons to help fund needed services in the community. For the first time in 2020, Super Sunday was held virtually, a successful format that allows volunteers to participate from the comfort of home. On Nov. 13, volunteers will be on the phones again, reaching out to hundreds of households.
To volunteer and make a big impact on the year ahead, register at jewishportland.org/supersundaynovember13. Volunteers will receive Zoom login and additional event details upon registration.
