Thanks to a very special donation that was received from a European friend of G.I.O.H. the furniture in our dormitories were renovated for newer, more modern ones that will suite the needs of our girls. After much search, the company “IKEA” was chosen. There, new furniture was purchased including beds and closets in light colored tones.

It is my pleasure to make this donation in honor of my father, Don Gray, for father’s day. I am reminded how fortunate I am to be blessed to have a father who has always been there for me. He is truly a family man and he loves his grandchildren dearly. There is nothing he won’t do for his family and we frequently say he’s got “the zayda magic”. Don is also a charitable and giving man, so I know this donation would make him proud. The girls’ orphanage is a charity I give to whenever the opportunity allows and I’m proud to be a third generation contributor. My sister-in-law, Donna, has also donated with me. Our money could not be spent on a more appropriate gift. Go in peace and G-d bless. Debi Gray Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania
I have been thinking a lot about you lately. I can’t believe that it has been 44 years that we have been involved with the orphanage. I hope, dear G-d, I can keep sending money for many more years. Hope you and the children have a healthy and happy holiday, Shalom, Miriam Kahn Milwaukee, Wisconsin
This letter is to donate in memory of Bertha Cohen, who passed away January 10, 2010 at the age of 94. Bertha was a woman who always thought of others and wanted to help any way she could, that possibly through her support and donations, someone’s life could be changed. The girl’s home was near and dear to her and she gave from the heart. I wanted to honor Bertha by donating in her memory. May Bertha rest in peace and G-d bless you. Sincerely, Maureen Wilson Cooper City, Fl.
Dear Directors, I am the Matriarch of a family of children and grandchildren. I am independent but have not forgotten even for a moment where I grew up. For years I kept quiet and did not reveal to anyone where I grew up. Yet now I speak about this with my children and grandchildren. I want them to know about my past history and this is no longer a secret. May your hard work be blessed and your endeavors be successful. Sincerely, Margalit Algrisi (Moshe) Kiryat Motzkin
