BBW Ha Lailah
Passover Baskets
Huge Success
Ha Lailah Chapter would
like to thank the many
members of the community
who contributed to the
Passover Basket project.
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.
