For Sammy’s Bat Mitzvah project, she made 118 beaded bracelets for campers at the Village. Sammy also had the opportunity to deliver her bracelets in person when she and her family traveled to Israel and visited the Village.
Ellie chose Jordan River Village as her Mitzvah Project for her upcoming Bat Mitzvah. She highlighted the Village at her synagogue’s Mitzvah Mall and raised money from congregants. To help offset the cost of lanyards that each volunteer wears at the Village, Ellie made 100 lanyard necklaces to send to the Village.
Jordan made a welcome card for each of the 1,900 children that visit the Village over the course of a year with positive phrases in Hebrew including “celebrate life”, “stay strong” and “enjoy camp” to comfort them with a welcome note upon their arrival at camp. Jordan put on a S’mores Sale to raise money for the Village to purchase equipment needed for the kids to have the best camp experience possible.
Alexa along with her friends and family walked 100 miles to raise money for Jordan River Village. Her love of camp and her motivation to help others was inspiring.
