About the project

Heating for the Elderly was a project to provide heaters, fuel and blankets to Jerusalem’s elderly population in the winter months. The municipality sponsored the project, oil and electric companies donated vehicles, kibbutzim and hotels donated surplus equipment and volunteers from city schools, youth clubs and community centers made the deliveries. The project helped thousands of elderly Jerusalemites: in the 1981-82 winter alone, the project aided more than 2,000 households; in the 1982-83 season, more than 3,000.
