Purchasing OHELâ€™s Mishloach Manot Helps Provide Jobs for Individuals with Disabilities
OHELâ€™s Coffee Themed Mishloach Manot Will Perk You Up!
Itâ€™s a Mitzvah on Purim to send mishloach manot, but making and sending to all of your family and friends can be expensive and time consuming. Fear not! OHELâ€™s Day Habilitation program has you covered for Purim this year.
The individuals from OHEL Bais Ezraâ€™s Day Habilitation Program will be packaging and selling mishloach manot this year. The theme of their mishloach manot is coffee, and there will be two packages to choose from. Each individual package will be put together with care and love by a developmentally disabled adult, with help from members of the community.
By buying mishloach manot from OHEL, you are not only giving shaloach manot, but so much more! This unique Mishloach Manot provides jobs and skill training, and instills OHEL individuals with dignity and a sense of accomplishment. Adele, who participates in the yearly program, said â€śI enjoy putting the shallach manos together for other peopleâ€ť, and Avigayil said â€śI like that we can help out and still get paid!â€ť
