50 School Supplies Backpacks to the JFS/MFA Mobilize Boston Container
By JFS of Metrowest Staff
We are excited to share that the JFS/MFA Mobilize Boston project is wrapping up next month, meaning we will soon be sending our shipping container of supplies to refugee camps across Syria!
Just last week, Gabe Miner of Jewish Teen Initiative (JTI) brought another delivery of backpacks to our storage container! He says, “The most recent backpacks were one of 18 projects on JTI & CJP Community Action Day, which saw more than 200 volunteers of all ages come to Plummer Youth Promise in Salem for an amazing day of service that included building, cooking, painting, and making backpacks.”
Thanks to the teens’ hard work and generosity, dozens of children in Syria’s refugee camps will be able to attend school with proper educational materials!

What We Say!
So cool to see the 40-foot shipping container that JFS of Metrowest is sending to Syria next month! We were happy to drop off the 50 bags of school supplies that we made at JTI & CJP – Combined Jewish Philanthropies Community Action Day…and somewhere in the container are also the 200 hygiene kits we made as part of Love Our Neighbors back in October. Thanks to all the #JewishBostonTeens and adults who helped pack bags this year and to JFS Metrowest for taking on this amazing project helping refugees! Nice work!!
