For his bar mitzvah project, my son, Ari, raised money through grants and donations to put solar panels on a favorite charity of ours. Through their food distribution program, the Jewish Relief Agency (JRA) and its corps of over 12,000 volunteers distribute food to over 3,000 needy families throughout the Greater Philadelphia area each month. The project was covered on our local NPR radio station here in Philadelphia, WHYY. The system will cut the JRA’s utility bills in half, allowing them to feed more hungry people.
If you have a favorite charity or local organization that you think would benefit from reduced utility costs, we would be happy to help you make that a reality. Please call and we can work together to help others. It would be our pleasure. (Call Mark at (267) 825-0918 or email him at [email protected]).
