More than 50 volunteers from the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford’s various beneficiary agencies took time last month to help out at Federation’s annual Super Sunday and Super Week, held at the agency’s West Hartford offices. The fundraising effort, held during the week of Chanukah, raised a total of $154,596, contributed by 319 donors, reported Federation President and CEO Howard Sovronsky.
“The warmth and spirit of the community was felt by all,” said Sovronsky. “We are grateful to all who volunteered and to those who made a gift to the 2016 Annual Campaign.”
Sovronsky also reported that this year the Federation offered an $1,800 prize to the partner agency that brought the most volunteer leadership and staff to Super Sunday. The winner: Hebrew HealthCare of West Hartford.
Beth Appelman, Federation’s vice president of development, echoed Sovronsky’s gratitude for both volunteers and donors.
“We deeply appreciate the support of our volunteers who made Super Sunday a great success,” she said. “Each gift made to the Annual Campaign helps the Federation to bringing Jewish values to life in ways that are meaningful to the individual and benefit our entire community.”
