Ronna Scoratow (left in the picture above) had been an amazing volunteer at JAA before COVID-19.
Yet, somehow, despite the restriction of visitors within our buildings, she still managed to bring joy and laughter to our nursing home residents during the pandemic. Besides donations of her time and energy, Ronna brought us a few extra calories too.
Every week for many months, Charles Morris residents received “Treats from Ronna.” She would bring ice cream, cupcakes, goodies of all kinds and provided magazines, crossword puzzles, and anything she could think of to lift up the spirits of our Charles Morris folks. She created cards, made phone calls, and sent greetings to the residents, constantly reminding her special friends that, though they were out of sight, they were certainly never out of her beautiful and thoughtful mind.
Thank you, Ronna. You are the perfect choice for JAA’s Volunteer of the Year.
And thank you to The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle for honoring all of our community’s volunteers.
