Do a mitzvah and join us on Monday, December 25th as a volunteer!
We are delighted to announce that we are going to serve the community with the Pinch Hitter program live and in person this year! Because of COVID concerns, ALL of our volunteers must be vaccinated, and if a facility requires us to be masked, we ask that you abide by their request.
Since 1980, the Pinch Hitters program has been a wonderful opportunity for us to give something back to the Atlanta community. As you know, Pinch Hitters is B’nai B’rith’s 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 are staffing a slate of seven hospitals and assisted living facilities, and we need your help.
You can sign up online at www.pinchhitters.org for your choice of hospital and shift. This is a fun activity for families
You can choose a shift at one of the seven facilities:
– Berman Commons
– Celebration Village Forsyth (New!)
– Dunwoody Place

– William Breman Jewish Home

– VA Medical Center
Shifts generally run from 7 to 11 (early morning), 11 to 3 (mid-day), or 3 to 7 (afternoon). Note that these times are approximate and will vary by facility and/or department.
