Yaldei Hashluchim Receive Summer Gift

by merkosnews

During rest hour this past Monday, Yisrolik couldn’t believe his eyes. Sitting in camp, miles away from home, a package arrived with his name on it! Packed inside was nosh and all sorts of goodies, and a caring message from MyShliach.

Hundreds of such care packages were sent to children of shluchim spending their summers in various sleep away camps. While in the past similar packages were sent throughout America, this year MyShliach expanded the reach of the program to Europe as well.

Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz, director of MyShliach, says receiving these packages has an invigorating affect on the children. “They get a strong sense of pride knowing they are part of a  family who cares for them and appreciates what they do.”

MyShliach, a division of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch Suite 302, is a program founded to assist Shluchim with their children’s chinuch. The summer care packages are just one more item on a long list of available services.

Rabbi Mendy Kotlarsky, executive director of Suite 302, says, “The theme running throughout all our programs is ‘how best can we help Shluchim?’ This program will boost the kids’ morale, and send them home with a renewed enthusiasm toward their Shlichus.”
