Merage Jewish Community Center will be Hosting The 5th Annual Tikkun 4 Troops
June 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Tikkun 4 Troops is an annual event of NextGen, a department of Jewish Federation & Family Services, an award winning non-profit 501(c)(3). Tikkun 4 Troops is organized in collaboration with Operation Gratitude and JCC Cares of the Merage Jewish Community Center.
NextGen, the young adult department of Jewish Federation & Family Services, in collaboration with Operation Gratitude and JCC Cares, endeavors to make a positive impact on the lives of U.S. troops, and we need your help! After successfully assembling 5,000 care packages last year we hope to make a meaningful impact toward our goal of building 5,000 care packages again this year.
After successfully assembling 5,000 care packages last year and being honored with the 2016 “Nonprofit of the Year” award by the State of California for our efforts, we are aiming even higher this year by increasing our goal to assemble 5,000+ care packages. This is where you can help: this year we are creating Patrol Care Kits. These are ideal for troops that will be away from their base for approximately two days. The average cost to build one Patrol Care Kit is $8.00.
Donating is easy! Just visit our Amazon Wish List, and search wish lists for Tikkun 4 Troops. There you will find a list of all the items we need to create a Patrol Care Kit. When you purchase these items directly from Amazon, they will be delivered to our office in preparation for assembling on June 24 at the Merage JCC in Irvine.
Of course, we are also accepting monetary donations which will be used to purchase any additional items needed in order to meet our goal.
