Great visuals – all ages, extremely colorful, huge room of volunteers making calls to raise funds to help those in need.

WHAT: Super Sunday, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s annual community-wide phone-a-thon that kicks off the community portion of the 2011 Campaign for Jewish Needs. Hundreds of individuals and families are expected for this upbeat event that generates thousands of pledges in support of the Campaign, which funds programs in the Jewish and general communities.

The Federation’s 14 local partner agencies and four international partners, funded in part by the annual Campaign, ensure that thousands of people in Cleveland, and several thousand more around the world, have access to the resources they need such as food, safe housing, school subsidies, job training, and mental health services – thanks to the generosity of thousands of donors.

WHEN: Sunday, February 27, 2011

9 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Children’s activities, 1:30 – 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Mandel Building, 25701 Science Park Drive, Beachwood

WHO: Hundreds of volunteers, including General Campaign Chair Gary L. Gross and Super Sunday Co-Chairs: Lara & Ronnen Isakov, Loren & Keith Israelstam and Meg & Jon Ratner. The event is open to the entire community.

WHY: Super Sunday is an energizing day to help the Campaign for Jewish Needs achieve its fundraising and participation goals. These last few years, the needs of the community have greatly increased. The Campaign helps feed the hungry, care for the elderly, aid the disadvantaged, and ensures a vibrant Jewish future in Cleveland and around the world. Volunteers making calls will ask for pledges of support and also, if needed, will be referring people to the Federation’s confidential Information and Referral line where people can request assistance.
