The Israel Tennis Centers Celebrates Good Deed Day!

Yesterday, 11th March, was National Good Deed Day in Israel and of course the ITC took part! Congratulations to our fabulous managers and their teams, who never miss an opportunity to teach our children that being able to give back is one of our greatest gifts.

The ITC – Tiberias took 45 children from the Embrace Project for children at risk to an old age home in the city. They played games with the residents and gave them “Misloach Manot” to celebrate Purim.

Over 30 children from the Embrace Project at the ITC – Shmona went to a local home for people with special needs – they entertained the residents with music, played games and had a great time!

The children from the Embrace Project at the ITC – Akko also did something special to mark this day – they went to visit a local charity for children with special needs.

Not to be outdone, the ITC – Beer Sheva, took children from all different programs to an old age home to organize fun activities for its residents.
