Since the establishment of Smile On Seniors in 2009, a new day has dawned for the golden age Jewish population in Phoenix and environs. Over the past eleven years, SOS, a volunteer fueled organization dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors in our midst, has experienced remarkable growth, and its varied contributions have been widely recognized. SOS flagship service remains its home visitation program by twinning volunteers with a senior “buddy”. SOS offers pre-holiday workshops, kosher cooking workshops and discussions with the Rabbi in various retirement and assisted living communities. Additionally, SOS offers Jewish seniors and active adults Shabbat dinners, lunches, holiday themed programming, monthly interactive programs and the popular social programs. Finally, SOS offers fabulous programs and events just for its growing community of volunteers.
