No, you read that right. Sure, it's summer and in Israel, the intense heat makes it difficult to think about winter coats. But as usual, Yad Eliezer is thinking ahead. We know that in just a few months, when the winter arrives with freezing cold and rainy weather, there will be terrible need-families who can't afford basic winter accessories like coats and blankets-that must be met.
To ensure that we will be as prepared as possible to help as many needy people as possible, we've already placed our order: 9000 boys' and girls' coats and for the first time, an additional 3,000 womens' coats for high school-aged girls. These are special order, high quality coats that we are able to get at an excellent price due to our early planning. Ordering in the summer also ensures that the coats will arrive with enough time to begin distribution the minute the weather starts to turn.
