Due to the overwhelming response from the communi- ^ ty, Ha Lailah was able to provide six needy Jewish families with foodstuffs for the Passover holidays. Without this community support Ha Lailah would never have been able to reach these families. ' ^Making Special Children Happy” On April 8 several of our members worked at the Special Olympics as buddies to the participants. It was our job to make sure that the child each member was assigned to was well taken care of. We took them to their races, made sure they had lunch, took them to various workshops, and cheered them on. It was a most worthwhile experience for us, as we watched the feeling of accomplishment light these children’s faces. Members of Chaverim BBG were a tremendous help at the Special Olympics, BBW Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference The BBW Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference will be held this year during the weekend of May 21-23 at the Hyatt Hotel in downtown Richmond, Virginia.
