Thank you for joining our efforts to bring happiness to people in need during the Purim holiday. This year was especially successful.
With your help, Meir Panim was able to distribute more than 1,200 mishloach manot packages to disadvantaged children, soldiers, and hospital patients. Deliveries to army bases and hospitals were made by children enrolled in Meir Panim’s after-school youth clubs, enabling them to feel the pride and satisfaction of giving, and not just receiving.
Another 500 mishloach manot packages were handed out to needy individuals in Meir Panim’s free restaurants across Israel. All of Meir Panim’s after-school youth clubs hosted festive Purim celebrations. 250 costumes were distributed to needy children, so that everyone could join in the fun!
Your generous support enhanced their holiday and brought joy to their lives.
For Passover, Meir Panim will distribute prepaid food shopping cards to struggling families, enabling them to buy Passover necessities and fill their pantries, and will deliver food packages to lone soldiers, the homebound and Holocaust survivors. And for those who have nowhere else to go, Meir Panim is matching needy families with hosts for Seder meals
throughout Israel. Last year, Meir Panim made almost 3000 matches, and delivered thousands of packages and food cards. With your help, this year we will do even more!
Thank you for being part of the Meir Panim family and continuing to support our vital work. I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Passover.
