Background

Where do the volunteers come from?

Our volunteers are from many different ethic and economic backgrounds, private and public schools, Christian and Jewish, but all have learned a lesson about the “Paying it Forward”. 

When parents hear about us they jump at the chance to participate.The volunteers are friends that have known our family since the children were in pre-school and friends of friends. These children are mostly from middle class households who are learning that giving of themselves can be as rewarding as receiving. 

Many volunteer youngsters are touched when they see how excited another child becomes when given even a relatively small gift – realizing that it really is the thought that counts.

“ It’s not one person doing it all but a group of kids that put others before themselves".
