The Village Shul Boys Give It Forward

18/05/22The Village Shul Boys Give It Forward

Bar Mitzvah boys from The Village Shul in Hampstead visited the GIFT Giving Hub this week to learn about the work GIFT does in the community, in addition to getting stuck into hands-on volunteering, packing food support parcels. 

Village Shul Rabbi, Yisroel Weisz, who accompanied the boys, commented 

“It was such an impactful session of giving for our Bar Mitzvah group! More than our young volunteers give of themselves to help GIFT pack food parcels for families in need, they receive a priceless gift. The best way of inspiring others to become charitable is to give them the experience of becoming givers. GIFT turns the idea of giving into action.”

GIFT Founding Director Michelle Barnett who ran the session, commented how “receptive the boys were to giving their time to help others less fortunate and how inquisitive they were, asking very thoughtful questions and engaging in discussions about using their talents and skills to contribute to society.”
