BENEFITING: HAND IN HAND
Hatmar Menashe Recreation Room
Hatmar Menashe, a regional army base in the heart of Judea and Samaria in Israel, stands vigilant defending the land of Israel 24 hours a day.
Among the platoons located at the base are several dozen soldiers of the Army’s Ordinance Corps, responsible for maintaining and ensuring that the vehicles and equipment on the base are ready to meet every threat and eventuality facing the Jewish people. These soldiers work some of the longest hours in the army, beginning their routine at 7 AM and completing their work well into the night. Their training is demanding and their responsibilities are immense. These soldiers come from all the socio-economical groups, and the experience and skills they acquired during their army service, including dependability, responsibility, professionalism, and friendship, accompany them into the civilian world, strengthening them and enabling to take on a new adventures with confidence.
To help improve their morale and productivity, we would like to upgrade the spartan conditions that the soldiers labor under- A new recreation room on the base will allow the soldiers with a place to unwind and recharge at the end of a long grueling day. To accomplish this goal, the army is willing to allocate the Ordinance Corps a room, but we cannot cover the costs of renovating it or outfitting it with the basic amenities, such as places to sit, books and shelves for a reading corner, and basic recreation equipment. The new room will make an enormous difference to the soldiers of the Ordinance Corps at Hatmar Menashe and ease the conditions of their service.
