Jewish Federation looking for volunteers for Super Sunday Phone-A-Thon

The 39th annual fundraising event will take place on Sunday, Jan. 28.

The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey’s 39th annual Super Sunday Phone-A-Thon takes place on Jan. 28 with two shifts: 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 4:45 to 8 p.m. The phones will ring off the hook that day as hundreds of passionate volunteers reach out to donors in Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester Counties to raise funds for the Jewish Federation’s JFund campaign. Super Sunday is followed by Super Week, which runs through Feb. 1. Last year, more than 300 volunteers raised more than $1 million in just one week.

“The dollars raised during Super Sunday/Week make a real impact on our South Jersey community, and in Jewish communities all around the world. Ninety cents on every dollar donated to JFund goes directly to programs and services, ensuring a Jewish future and caring for all those in need,” said Jennifer Dubrow Weiss, CEO of Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey.

In addition to the more than 300 volunteers who come out for Super Sunday, local dignitaries also show their support with their attendance. The federation needs volunteers on Super Sunday to make calls and assist with clerical work. All volunteers receive a continental breakfast and a light dinner the day of the event.

Phone and clerical volunteers are also needed during Super Week. Training is provided onsite, with onsite parking available. Those unable to volunteer can donate when called.
