Help Meet Basic Needs
1. There are units that are serving in extremely cold areas. Out of the hundreds of young men and women serving there are 130 of them that cannot afford a basic winter fleece. Almond Branch is currently raising money to cover the cost. Each fleece costs $22.
2. A second brigade in the south needs 130 field bags for those soldiers that cannot afford their own and Almond Branch is raising funds for that expense. Each bag runs $19.
3. Water Backpacks are needed for those soldiers living in poverty and who serve in areas that reach temperatures of over 110 F. Water dehydration is a major health concern for all Israelis living in the southern Negev regions and the north regions of the Golan. They run about $18 per bag.
4. Simple brimmed hats provide much needed shade and some relief to soldiers serving in the north. Currently 500 soldiers are unable to afford this basic piece of equipment. They cost $3.25 a hat.
