On February 15 in our entry entitled "Israel’s Young Activists" we described our meeting with Jesse and Steven Fox and Gilli and Daniel Cherrin, young Tel-Aviv residents who began Fugee Fridays. The all-volunteer group picks up leftovers from the Carmel Market on Friday afternoons and delivers them to many of the African refugees who are living in nearby shelters, as well as to many poor residents in South Tel-Aviv. The group is engaged in several other beneficial activities including interaction with many of the immigrant children in both play and study.
Impressed with what the group has accomplished, we promised to underwrite the cost of t-shirts which would be printed with the group’s logo. With the imprinted shirts the volunteers would be more easily recognized by the market’s merchants and give their efforts a bit more of a formal tone.
We were so happy to just receive this picture and agree that the volunteers look very professional as they pick up the luscious fruits and vegetables that will feed many hungry people who have come to rely upon this dedicated group.
