Welcome to Pinch Hitters!
We weathered the covid storm and are back for 2022! For continued safety, we will require all volunteers to be vaccinated, and if a particular facility requires masking, we ask that you help us abide by their request.
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 nine hospital / assisted living facilities on Sunday, December 25th, 2022, and we need your help.
|Sign Up||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).|
Facilities: Berman Commons; Dunwoody Place; Georgian Lakeside; Historic Roswell Place, Solana East Cobb, Somerby Senior Living; The Cohen Home; VA Medical Center; and William Breman Jewish Home.
