The large charitable organization, Chasdei Naomi sums up a busy summer. With the help of volunteers, including many schoolchildren from throughout Israel, Chasdei Naomi’s back to school campaign has ended.
During the campaign, back-to-school supplies including schoolbags, notebooks, textbooks, pencil cases, writing implements, book covers, colored labels, etc. were distributed.
Many volunteers packed schoolbag after schoolbag at Chasdei Naomi’s logistic centers.
The schoolbags were filled with everything a boy or girl needs during the school year – high quality, colorful and attractive products.
Rabbi Yosef Cohen thanked the children and parents who volunteered.
“Apart from the fact that you have helped us make many families in Israel happy, you showed your children that one can also do very important things related to values. Children whose parents educate them to come and volunteer in the vacation are lucky. Doing things for others is important. When you see the smile and tears of the excited children who receive these bags, the joy of a widowed mother, when she holds a shiny new bag with colorful notebooks and an attractive pencil case. She knows that she couldn’t afford those hundreds of shekels – and suddenly, her child has a new bag full of everything he needs.
“Even after more than 30 years it still moves me every time” said Rabbi Yosef Cohen, chair of Chasdei Naomi during the campaign in which the schoolbags were distributed throughout the country.
