This column features a volunteer from one of the many
groups, agencies or organizations that add to the qual
ity of life in the Charlotte Jewish community.
A Week-Long Volunteer!
“I don’t play cards ... I vol
unteer. That’s what I love to do.
I don’t like to stay home.” That’s
how this month’s volunteer of the
month, Hushie Silverstein, ex
plains why she is such an active
volunteer. Hushie has a six-day a
week schedule of volunteering:
SUNDAY - Gift Shop at
Temple Israel. Hushie opens the
gift shop each Sunday morning
and cheerfully provides sales as
sistance to customers.
MONDAY - Senior hot
lunch program at the JCC for the
Chai group. “We serve twenty to
twenty-five customers. I’m a glo
rified waitress and a sometimes-
cook’s assistant,” says Hushie.
TUESDAY - Morrison Re
gional Library. Hushie helps
shelve books and works at what
ever is needed. “Libraries are
underfunded and need volun
teers,” Hushie points out.
WEDNESDAY and FRI
DAY » Driver for those who need
transportation to doctors’ and
dentists’ appointments and shop
ping for both the Jewish Family
Services and The Shepherd Cen
ter. (The Shepherd Center is
funded by churches and syna
gogues in the Charlotte area.)
THURSDAY - Performing
Arts Center in uptown Charlotte.
Hushie helps the staff in the mar
keting and development depart
SATURDAY - The Sabbath
is, of course a day of rest. Hushie
attends services at Temple Israel.
Hushie moved to Charlotte
fifty-four years ago, when she
married her late husband Isadore
Silverstein, a native Charlottean.
Hushie explained that the
Silverstein family was one of the
first Jewish families to settle in
Charlotte. Her two children are
Robyn Van Dresser and Gary
Silverstein. She is proud of her
two grown grandchildren Kara
and Scott Silverstein, who are
third generation Charlotteans.
Hushie's active volunteer
schedule placed her on the lists of
“Volunteer of the Month” for both
the Jewish Family Services and
the JCC. “Every city needs vol
unteers and couldn’t exist without
them. Everyone who is able
should,volunteer in some capac
ity,” Hushie said in closing the
Those are wise words,
Hushie, and the city of Charlotte
is all the more richer because of
your volunteer activities!
