2023 Pinch Hitter Program

Since 1980, the Pinch Hitter Program has served as an annual opportunity for Jewish Atlantans to give back by going to work for non-medical healthcare workers on Christmas Day.

Christmas is a sacred holiday for our Christian brethren – a day of worship, goodwill, and togetherness. Businesses typically close for the day so employees may spend the holiday with their loved ones. However, essential services, such as hospitals, nursing homes, police, and fire stations must stay open on Christmas.

But thanks to the Pinch Hitter Program and its cadre of volunteers, many of those essential employees were, in fact, able to enjoy the holiday away from work. Since 1980, the Pinch Hitter Program has served as an annual opportunity for Jewish Atlantans to give back by going to work for non-medical healthcare workers on Christmas Day. Achim/Gate City Lodge of B’nai B’rith extends their sincere thanks to all the volunteers who participated in the Pinch Hitter Program on Christmas Day, 2023, and a special Yasher Koach to the volunteer hospital coordinators (noted with **) and their assistants (noted with *) without whom the Pinch Hitter Program would have been impossible to produce.

Heartfelt thanks go also to the sponsors: Capital Investment Advisors; Siegel Insurance–Auto-Owners Insurance; Publix Supermarkets Charities; Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC; Coldwell Banker–Debbie Sonenshine; Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care; Kessler and Solomiany, PC; Loventhal Insurance Group and Toco Instant Printing.
