Ed and Barbara Shapiro pledge continued support for children of asylum seekers
Ed and Barbara Shapiro celebrated Tu Bishvat (Jewish New Year for Trees) with Mayor Ron Huldai and children of asylum seekers, planting a tree at a local kindergarten after touring the newly renovated daycare in the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station. The Shapiro Foundation supported the renovation of the daycare as well as afternoon childcare facilities in kindergartens. Creating such facilities to remove children of asylum seekers from unsafe environments is a critical need in south Tel Aviv. The Shapiros pledged to continue to support this most vulnerable group.
