Help Refresh our Soldiers

As we all know summer in Israel can be brutally hot. Our soldiers serve in some of the hottest areas of the country protecting our borders in full combat gear which only adds to the heat.

In some areas of the country temperatures can reach up to 120F in some areas of Israel. Last year we were able to give thousands of soldiers a pool day including transportation to and from their bases, popsicles, and a barbecue.

We would like to run this project again this year and need your help to make it happen. The cost of a pool day for a platoon (50) soldiers is $2500. For this amount we are able to provide: BBQ for 50 soldiers- $1250 Transportation- $750 Pool- $250 Popsicles- $250 or you can sponsor any amount.

Please see this article written about Connections Israel from last year during Protective Edge when we brought thousands of soldiers to pools in the south of Israel.
