Thank you for a great year
With your generous assistance the last 12 months have been filled with great strides forward for Standing Together. As you may recall our organization started over 20 years ago with David Landau giving a pizza and soda to a young soldier who appeared lonely and afraid as he stood guard near the one cement pillar for protection at the entrance of Kever Rachel.
This year was our best year ever. Standing Together gave out:
2500 Donuts on Chanukah
Every holiday we try to give Israeli soldiers an extra taste of love from the Jewish community around the world. For Purim we gave out 800 mishloach manot and on Pesach we gave out 1000 gifts of Maot Chitim packages.
6000 Cold Treats
100,000 Thank Yous Campaign Launch
Thanks to you, our 3000 Volunteers, we were able to accomplish wonderful gifts of giving to Israeli soldiers. And now with our new website and new non-profit status in America as Standing Together INC. we plan to accomplish even more this coming year.
We let the soldiers know that they have you Standing Together with them. And we cannot do this without your support. A special thank you to the Jewish Community of Kansas City whose donation kicked off our summer cold treat campaign for the chayalim on the Israeli border with Gaza.
This year we will be fundraising for the purchase of a new TEN TON TRUCK to bring even more treats to IDF soldiers. This truck will stock ice cream, ices and cold drinks. It will include a pop corn maker, waffle machine, pizza oven, pretzel warmer and more.
In addition, we are working on our special holiday campaigns and our 100,000 Thank Yous campaign to fill the streets of Israel with solidarity for Israeli soldiers.
This New Year, we send you a huge thank you for a successful year of giving and a prayer that you and your family will continue to support the soldiers guarding Israel and that both you and the chayalim will stay safe and experience a year of peace and prosperity, a year of happiness and health. Looking forward to starting the New Year together.
