Welcome to Pinch Hitters!
Since 1980, the Pinch Hitter Program has been a wonderful opportunity for us to give back to the Atlanta community. As you know, Pinch Hitters is our annual community service project where volunteers from the Atlanta Jewish Community “go to bat” for non-medical hospital personnel on Christmas Day. This is so our Christian brethren can spend the holiday at home with their families. In past years, hundreds of volunteers like you helped make our Pinch Hitter Program better and better. This year, we will be staffing ten hospital or assisted living facilities on Sunday, December 25th, 2017, and we need your help.
You can choose a shift at one of the following facilities. Shifts generally run from 7 to 11 (early morning), 11 to 3 (mid-day), or 3 to 7 (afternoon). Please note that these times are approximate and may vary by hospital and/or department. Check the sign-up form to see which shifts are now filled.
Only one shift location still available!
FACILITIES SERVED: Berman Commons, Brookdale Dunwoody, Brookdale Big Creek Roswell , The Cohen Home, Roswell Nursing & Rehab Center, Sadie Mays Health & Rehab Center, St. Joseph’s Hospital (flu shot needed), Sunrise at Huntcliff, and VA Medical Center. (Note: pre-teens are allowed with parents at The Cohen Home and Brookdale Big Creek only. )
