This year, after much work and cooperation with dozens of welfare departments, organizations and nonprofits from all over the country, thousands of backpacks arrived early in July at the Millennium Center. The staff organized the boxes of backpacks according to donation locations and quantities and carefully prepared the paperwork.

Yamit* lost her husband in December 2015 in a terror attack. On that sad day, her late husband (Ofer) was driving in Jerusalem when he saw two terrorists armed with knives stabbing people who were passing by. He got out of his car with a metal rod and ran toward the terrorists. At the same time, three policewomen heard the screaming and shot the terrorists. Tragically, Ofer was caught in the line of fire and was killed on the spot. In honor of his bravery, he received a medal of courage.

As part of our Pack to School project this summer, our team went to an after-school childcare facility in Jerusalem to give out backpacks. Twenty children in grades one through four attend, and most of them are from at-risk families and suffer both from learning and behavioral difficulties. The children come every day after school to receive a hot meal, get help with homework and language difficulties,  enjoy playtime and receive therapy.

During the first Intifada in1990, when Achikam was 7 months old, he was struck in the head by a stone that was thrown at his family's vehicle. His life was changed forever. His mother said, "It was the height of the first Intifada, and you couldn't travel without getting stones thrown at your vehicle. It was very dangerous to travel the roads . . . Achikam started crying. There wasn't an open wound, but his head began to swell." When they got home, they rinsed the broken glass off of him, turned around and drove back to the hospital.
