The Sunshine Team

 Sunshine Meals started in 2018 as a Bnai Israel program to deliver a kosher meal to congregants recovering from acute illness, surgery, childbirth or a hospital or Rehab stay.

With grants from CFJS, we now offer additional services to those seniors who live alone, are isolated or chronically ill.

The Case Management program is funded with a grant from Carolina Foundation for Jewish Seniors along with its commitmentImage to enriching the lives of Jewish adults in North and South Carolina.

 

What’s new?  We are now The Sunshine Team!                                                           

                                                                                                                             

Thanks to a generous grant from Carolina Foundation for Jewish Seniors, we are able to expand our program!

We will continue to provide meals for congregants after discharge from the hospital or rehab but now are able to provide meals for up to 1 week. The food will be specific to one's dietary needs, with input from a nutritionist as necessary.

A new and major focus of The Sunshine Team will be reaching out to those seniors who may be isolated, live alone, or have a chronic illness that limits their ability to get around as much as they’d like. Some may need new opportunities to socialize safely or need other assistance.

Our first goal is ensuring that our seniors are able to connect online. We want everyone to have the opportunity to attend online events, keep in touch with family or friends, or attend services. All of these can be done via Zoom. Online programs geared to our senior population are also in the works. We can also help with needs such as errands or grocery shopping for those who have difficulty doing so themselves. There is no charge for these services.

Would you be interested in learning more about our program?

Do you know a fellow congregant who might benefit from these services?                                                                                                               

Participation is voluntary and the privacy of our congregants is of the utmost importance. Requests can be made by calling the synagogue office, Rabbi Bender or Michelle Bannon at 706-832-3048.                                                                                                                                       

We also need volunteers to help in all aspects of this program.

Donations to help cover costs are appreciated and may be made on ShulCloud or by check to Bnai Israel with "Sunshine Meals" noted on the memo line.
