Local teens raise and donate $204,000!!!

The young philanthropists in our Jewish Community Teen Foundations have garnered much deserved press coverage once again. This time for raising and donating $204,000 this past school year! The teenagers have selected a wide-range of grant recipients this year, including donating $14,000 to PlayPumps International that builds merry-go-round powered water pumps in Africa, $10,000 to a school built on a train platform in India, and $9,000 to help Kenyans learn more effective farming techniques. Their funds will also help those in our community, including providing outdoor experiences for children, feeding hungry families, and assisting Holocaust survivors.
