Community Outreach

Creating Connections in the Community for Volunteers and Service Recipients

Volunteers are an integral part of COA. They can be of any age, any skill set or educational background, from the Jewish and the wider community. All help is appreciated.

Volunteers are involved at the COA Centre with catering, clerical, and management roles, and most importantly they provide outreach services to the community, 

We have three different outreach programs which volunteers and members can become part of:

Kosher Meals-on-Wheels

Delivering subsidised kosher meals to seniors at home, with deliverers visiting the same recipients each time; providing social connection and company for some seniors who have no other person come to their door in a week. This service has been in operation for over 40 years, and was the first service ever provided by COA.

COA Fresh

Packing and delivering a selection of fresh vegetables, fruit, bread products, and other household and personal items each week as a free services to those most in need. Contributed to by many of our partner organisations and sponsored by Peter & Jenny Whol and Family

The Hannah Meyer Project

Regular visits to Jewish residents in Non-Jewish Aged Care Facilities, to provide kiddush and candle lighting for Shabbat. Jewish Festivals are also celebrated with kiddushim, candle lighting and special gifts of food or items specific to the festival, including “bokerim” to blow Shofar at High Holidays. 

The Minyan Men

When a Jewish person passes and there are not enough family and friends to left to make up 10 men this group will be called upon to help make Minayn to say Kadish, to help with Shiva and provide the deceased and their family dignity and respect at such a sensitive time.
