HELP SOLDIERS IN NEED WITH FOOD FOR THE HIGH HOLIDAYS
We need your help for our crucial matching opportunity this High Holiday season!
Imagine what must go through the mind of a hardworking, needy IDF soldier,
one who is worrying about how to buy food for themselves or their family for the High Holidays.
Now imagine the reaction of that same soldier,upon receiving gift cards worth hundreds of shekels for use at a major supermarket chain, in time for Yom Tov.
American Friends of Yad Eliezer | B'ezri is once again partnering with a N.Y. based foundation in our crucial matching program, to provide impoverished IDF soldiers with vital support that will help them buy food for the High Holidays.
Our program is in full swing! We are working urgently to help 3,220 of these soldiers including:
-those from disadvantaged homes
-married soldiers who can’t make ends meet for their families
-lone soldiers who have no family at all, and others
To make this happen, we must raise $250,000. Our partner will match that to total $500,000, which will be distributed to struggling soldiers throughout Israel in the form of supermarket gift cards, so they can shop for traditional Yom Tov foods including chicken & meat, honey, produce and other items they need, with dignity.
The jump in food prices & costs of living are worsening the situations in homes of IDF soldiers who were already struggling to pay for basic needs, let alone holiday necessities. We're here to help through this vital program, which really transforms their Yom Tov!
Please join us and we'll bring relief, a feeling of normalcy and a feeling of dignity to 3,220 soldiers. Help us show them we care, and help them get their New Year off to a positive start.
Take a look at the power of your tzedaka:
“Thank you for letting us know that you appreciate us and that you are looking out for us. Especially now, when everything is harder - buying food and paying bills is more difficult than ever before for my family, this is incredibly helpful. It's only because of your supportthat we will be able to get what we need for the Chagim.” -Assaf K., IDF soldier
