As a thank you for ongoing dedicated service to the COA's Kosher Meals-on-Wheels program Ruth and Morris Eskin were presented with a Golden leaf on the COA Tree of Life, a place where COA members and friends remember births, barmitzvahs, milestone birthdays, anniversaries, special moments, and memorialise their loved ones. Ruth and Morris have spent over 12 years delivering food to COA members in the Eastern Suburbs, as well as volunteering with other worthwhile community organisations. This dedication won them the JCA’s 2018 Volunteer of the Year award for Menchlichkeit.

We are blessed with many volunteers like the Eskins who, rain hail or shine, deliver our meals to those in need of food services at home so they can remain in their own homes for as long as they wish. It is truly amazing the difference a weekly volunteer role can make, both for volunteers and recipients of their kindness, and we are always seeking more compassionate people like Ruth and Morris to continue the good work of COA in our community.
