As we all prepare for the upcoming New Year that will (hopefully) include several sumptuous meals with friends and family, we are pleased to share the following short messages we just received from some of the many people both here and in Israel who allocated our donated supermarket scrip to needy families and individuals that they work with. More than $10,000 was donated to help with food costs this holiday season. We are so grateful to all of our donors who make this possible. It does feel good!
Here is the breakdown of how the scrip was distributed. Hopefully the holidays will be a little easier for them, thanks to your help.
Family Mraga: 1,000
Family Benshalom: 1,500nis
Our contact, GL (Shimon, Liat and one other family): 3,000
Family Levin: 500
Risa Benami: 740
Thank you for your very, very generous support.
The 6,560 NIS is providing essential help in sustenance for these families. In deepest gratitude for this wonderful Holiday Mitzvah,
My dear Naomi,
… I received the scrip and I am so grateful that I can give out this money to the few girlfriends that really need a financial helping hand. There is one girlfriend, married now, who actually doesn’t have enough money to buy food. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
