Help Feed Needy Families
There are about 600 families within the Binyamin Region who live below the poverty line and make use of the services provided by the Social Services and Welfare Office. Of the many services provided by these governmental offices are things such as counseling, and financial planning help. In conjunction with these offices, The Heart of Israel, twice a year, around the time of the Jewish Holidays, donates monetary gift cards to needy families. These vouchers allow them to buy food and essentials, so that they too can celebrate the holidays.
2. The Cost
600 Food vouchers, for the amount of $150 per family (500 NIS) are purchased.
3. The Process
In order to have a fair selection process, we work closely with our own Social Workers, and usually, the families that receive such pre-holiday help are of low socio-economic means with large families. Every family that receives support, has a prior file open with one of our social workers.
