Celebrating Unsung Heroes

**A big thank you to those who have already contributed. We are close to being able to thank all of the service workers at Silverado and hope to raise enough to acknowledge workers in other nursing homes**

Or Ami seeks to recognize the unsung, invisible heroes who are working in skilled nursing facilities during this pandemic. Behind the front lines, these men and women risk their lives taking care of the sick and the elderly.  At the Silverado Nursing Facility just across the freeway in Calabasas, there are 25 housekeepers, maintenance and food service workers who deserve our thanks and recognition. 

We invite you to donate $18, $36, $72 (or as much as you are able) to purchase Target gift cards for these men and women.

With your generous donations, we can then branch out and acknowledge deserving workers at other community facilities. 

Instructions to Donate: Go to orami.org/donate and choose “General Donation,” writing a note saying it is for “The Unsung Project.”

If instead of, or in addition to, making a donation, you would like to handwrite a note of thanks, contact Or Ami Social Action Coordinator Laurie Tragen-Boykoff at Laurietb@orami.org for more information.

If you are in need of personal support during the COVID-19 pandemic, please contact Rabbi Paul Kipnes.
