Caring Committee

The Caring Committee - Help for Those Who Are Ill

The job of the Caring Committee is to coordinate assistance to members and their families when there is an illness, injury or hospitalization. Assistance can be in many forms, such as meals prepared and delivered to the home, transportation to appointments, grocery shopping and other errands, even help with laundry.

Committee coordinators first speak directly to the family to determine what the specific needs are, then contact a pool of volunteers through e-mail and phone. The coordinators act as “case managers” for the family, maintaining a schedule of volunteers and staying in touch with the families for as long as they may need help.

If you are experiencing an illness or injury or facing a hospitalization you can contact the committee directly by e-mailing Barbara Checknoff at barbarachecknoff@aol.com, or you can ask a member of the Temple's professional staff to pass your name along.

If you would like to volunteer to do this very important work, also email Barbara at barbarachecknoff@aol.com.
