OHEL Bais Ezra Hosts 2nd Annual Appreciation BBQ
OHELâ€™s Special Projects Division Hosts Annual Thank You BBQ forÂ itâ€™s Hard Working Staff & Volunteers
This past Sunday, the Special Projects Department of OHEL Bais Ezra held its 2nd annual staff appreciation BBQ. Many of the programs that OHEL Bais Ezraâ€™s Special Projects department runs rely on staff and volunteers to help make the programs as successful as they are. Over the course of the year, many staff members have volunteered their time and energy to spend it with the children of OHEL Bais Ezra, and participate in the numerous events that the Special Projects department organizes.Â
The staff, ages 16 and up, come from all over the New York and New Jersey areas. This BBQ was a way for OHEL to thank them for all of their hard work. â€śTo have a student in high school give up their free time to spend it with a child with special needs really says a lot about an individualâ€ť Said Kuti Roberg, Senior Manager of Special Projects. â€śThis BBQ allows us to show our appreciation to the staff for all that they doâ€ť. The BBQ, hosted by Miri and Kuti Roberg of Cedarhurst, was co-sponsored by Gourmet Glatt of Cedarhurst.
As the school year is ending, the Special Projects division is gearing up for their one week End of Summer program, which takes place at the end of August. The one week program takes 50 boys and 70 girls ages 5-21, with various levels of disabilities, to upstate NY on two different campuses; the boys will be in OHELâ€™s Camp Kaylie and the girls will be in Camp Nageela.
The End of Summer Program requires over 200 staff members to make it an unforgettable experience for the children.
