Israel Tennis Centers Takes Active Role in Mitzvah Day Celebration

This past week the Israel Tennis Centers participated in Israel’s national “Mitzvah Day”, in which hundreds of children from the ITC Embrace Programs for youth at risk took part in activities designed to help those in need. These included:

•Children from the ITC – Akko spruced up a local garden by painting the walls and planting flowers;
•Children from the ITC – Kiryat Shmona rolled up their sleeves and volunteered to do chores at the center;
•Children from the Elizabeth and Lawrence Krulik Family ITC – Tiberias helped renovate the gates, clean the garden and hang swings;
•Children from the Harry and Evelyn Burg ITC – Arad visited a day care center whose workers have special needs;
•Children from the Ethiopian Excellence Program at the Samson Israel Tennis Center – Beer Sheva along with children from Addison Reserve Embrace Program visited a local group of seniors, made them cards and cleaned their garden.

These acts of kindness are just one of thousands of activities that take place every year at the 14 Israel Tennis Centers throughout Israel. The children learn the value of giving back from the various programs offered at the centers.

While many people are familiar with the ITC’s various programs, most may not know that the organization just launched a more dynamic way of showcasing its life altering mission – the newly designed ITC website. Visit and enjoy!
