How does it work?

 

The IDF Purim Project, together with volunteers at Chayal el Chayal, create 3,000 beautiful Mishloach Manot packages filled with hamantashen and tasty treats.

Once Purim begins, staff, volunteers and former lone soldiers load up their cars with Mishloach Manot and drive all around Israel, handing out packages to soldiers on base.

Want to get involved? Donate Mishloach Manot and write a letter to a soldier.
Spread the joy.
