JNF Work in Disabilities: Special in Uniform
Special in Uniform
As the Coronavirus the volunteers soldiers of Special in Uniform IDF Home Front Command has been assisting the national effort to contain the spread of the virus in the country by packed and replenished testing and emergency kits. The soldiers’ previous experience preparing emergency and crisis kits made them priority workers for the job! Special in Uniform’s soldiers demonstrated their capacities and exemplary dedication with their conscientious, patient and persistent approach to a job that requires long hours of repetitive work.
Please help me support the heroes of Israel by making a contribution to my fundraiser page and sharing this page with your family and friends. With your support and involvement we will continue to stand together as a community, providing care and support, for them and each other.
Together, we will continue to exhibit the Jewish traits of resilience, unity, and hope, proving once again, that community is a function of resolve, not proximity!
