We are so proud of the young leaders who choose Jacob’s Ladder for their Project Give Back journey. Awareness is key and these young students share what we do so well. Each year approximately 1,000 Project Give Back students follow their hearts and teach their classmates about a cause that is meaningful to them. The schools participating in the program this year are: Allenby Public School, John Ross Robertson Public School, Humewood Public School, Essex Public School, Regal Road Junior Public School, Crestwood School, The Leo Baeck Day School Arlington and Atkinson Campuses, Robbins Hebrew Academy, Netivot Ha Torah Day School, Associated Hebrew Schools Kamin and Posluns Campus, Montcrest School, Forest Hill JuniorPublic School, Fieldstone Day School, Lord Dufferin Public School, Clinton Street Public School, Denlow Public School and Willowwood School. More than 500 worthy causes are being showcased by these young leaders.
Do they remember? Yes, they do! In Grade 4 Jack chose Jacob’s Ladder as his charity for Project Give Back. Now four years later and many inches taller, Jack showed up at the door with a generous donation for Jacob’s Ladder from his Bar Mitzvah money. Mazel tov Jack!
