The Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona held its annual Super Sunday phone-a-thon on Jan. 27 at the Tucson Jewish Community Center. During the festive, sports-themed event, 120 phone and clerical volunteers reached out to community members, collecting more than 260 pledges and donations for the 2019 Community Campaign, which supports humanitarian and educational programs in Tucson, Israel and around the world. The Campaign is at nearly 60 percent of its $4 million goal, thanks to the success of its “100 Days of Impact,” Oct.19-Feb. 1. In addition, Super Sunday Red Cross blood drive donations totaled 34 pints, with the capacity to save 102 lives.
