Super Sunday phonathon adds focus on family, community service

This year the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland expands its Super Sunday phonathon into Community Action Day – with hands-on service projects and family-friendly activities including an afternoon concert by renowned Jewish rocker Rick Recht.

Volunteers will raise critical funds that support the network of organizations that make the metro Jewish community vibrant and strong.

Super Sunday Chair Jaimie Harper said she is thrilled the phonathon is returning to the Mittleman Jewish Community Center: “I have fond memories from my youth of the buzz and energy around the JCC on Super Sunday when my Dad, Mort, would make his annual calls.”

Harper said she is especially pleased the day will feature family fun to help engage all ages in tzedakah. Her son, Reuben, who will make his first donation to Federation just before his third birthday, will be among the young “first-time givers” honored prior to Recht’s concert.

Make calls or keep things running smoothly during the phonathon, or help out with a service project. Projects will be listed online at www.jewishportland.org/supersunday, where volunteers can sign up to volunteer for the phonathon or a service project. Childcare is available for children under 10 years from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
