It is now a decade since a fruitful cooperation began between Arad Group - Integrated Metering Technologies and the Children’s Home. Arad Group became a public company and decided to support community activities. The company decided it was the obligation of a public company to support the community (especially if the company succeeded financially). They chose to support our institution partly due to the geographical proximity.
Personal connections that developed between the Children’s Home management and the educational staff brought about the choice of the Children’s Home as the location for the firm to become involved in its community support.
During this decade Arad has been a partner in a number of activities, all of which were directed to support the Children’s Home, to ensure every child received the ideal conditions for studying, enrichment, and finding their own way in the world.
Among the activities:
- Establishing a computer center
- Setting up a reading area and library
- Renovating the dining hall so that it will be inviting and pleasant
- Financially supporting art activities
- General face lifting of the Children’s Home
- Assisting students with tutoring for their studies
- Various classes and activity groups
- Participation in holidays, Bar Mitzvah celebrations, end-of-year parties, etc.
Arad is proud of its contribution to the Children’s Home through all its activities and sees the Children’s Home as an important part of the firm’s continuing community activities.
Ambar Food Centers (animal feed)
Ambar Group and Ambar Food Centers have chosen to adopt Bet Singer, as part of their involvement in and support of the community, with their efforts being directed to the therapeutic petting zoo. When we carried out a water drainage project in the Children’s Home they assisted in maintaining the petting zoo buildings, under the supervision of David Shabat of Ambar. Ambar officially stated they intend to continue to strengthen the cooperation with the management of The Children’s Home and the staff, with Arad, and with all people and firms that support Bet Singer.
Ricor – Cyrogenic and Vacuum Systems
Ricor began supporting the Children’s Home in 2000 and has supported activities for the children in social responsibility and contribution to the community.
Most activities combine a monetary contribution with volunteer work, such as the enrichment studies for ninth graders from the Emek Harod school. Ricor engineers acted as instructors. Ricor gave its support and offered instructors to a group of youths in the special project “young entrepreneurs”. Employees with computer abilities upgraded computer classrooms in the school. They make a recurring contribution to the NGO Alut that supports families with autistic children.
