“Project M.O.T. — sending holiday care packages to our deployed American Jewish troops, far from home and loved ones.”
For people in the Los Angeles area, packers are welcome on March 9th. Information on the packing day can be obtained from ProjectMOT@aol.com
For those of you outside LA, you may contact ProjectMOT@aol.com to arrange to send Pesach supplies in time for the packing day on March 9th.
(Or donations for buying supplies are always welcome.)
I just received a lovely message via Facebook from someone who plans to donate hand-knitted kipot for the packages. Perhaps your synagogue wants to send holiday greeting cards to deployed Jewish personnel. (These cannot be sent to individuals but must be sent through an organization such as ProjectMOT.)
There are many ways that deployed Jewish military personnel can be supported through the efforts of ProjectMOT.
