The Gold Coast Quilter’s Guild

The Gold Coast Quilter’s GuildSue and Jane, from The Gold Coast Quilter’s Guild, delivered 23 kid-themed quilts — especially made by their young students for our children.

Each Family Promise child will receive a beautiful quilt — that they can wrap around them and feel secure. Each quilt has a handwritten note from the maker with a special message.

One in particular touching note: “I hope you get a home soon”.

Thank you Sue and Jane and special thank you to the loving little hands that made these beautiful quilts.

Jad and “Houses for Change” campaign

Meet Jad Frydman, an 11 year old extraordinary volunteer from B’nai Torah Congregation, who has been hosting since he was 4 years old.  A quiet young man with a big heart, Jad decided “to do more to help Family Promise families.”  He asked Tony Clark, owner of Inception Exclusive Athletic Studio, Jad’s fitness center in Boca Raton, if he could set up a Family Promise donation area to raise money and needed items for our families.  Tony readily agreed and they encouraged the fitness members to contribute.  Additionally, Jad asked his 5th grade class at Donna Klein Jewish Academy to collect toiletries and dry goods. In a few weeks, Jad collected an entire wall of toilet paper, wipes, toothpaste, pasta, cereal and a members filled  Houses for Change collection box with monetary donations.

Thank you Jad, his mother Kelly, Tony, and the 5th grade class at Donna Klein Jewish Academy for creating this fabulous project.
