Project KeepOlim Gives
Building a sense of belonging to our new homeland during the Haifa and Zicharon Yaacov fires, Project “KeepOlim Gives” was established. We opened 32 dropoff centers across Israel and hundreds of Olim donated clothes, blankets, jackets, diapers and toys to the fire victims. Cars and trucks overflowed with supplies and love for our fellow Israelis.
