The “Izzie Project” Benefiting School on Wheels

Kids helping Kids is growing part of SOWMA’s work.  Student volunteers of all ages bring their passion and talents to SOWMA to help those less fortunate.  Kids Helping Kids fosters leadership skills and builds community service and connection. That’s exactly what Isabel (“Izzie”) Berkenblit decided to do as part of her Bat Mitzvah project.

Izzie decided to support School on Wheels’ students through what she named the “Izzie Project.”  She combined her love for sewing with her passion for helping children and made custom-designed pillowcases for our students.  She turned to her Girl Scout troop for help – and received donated material from friend Robin Salvas, pictured above.  Izzie and her newly created team donated more than 200 pillowcases for children experiencing homelessness.

Izzie travelled to our tutoring sites to deliver the pillowcases and saw first-hand how her contributions were received by students.

“It was so amazing to be able to see the kids faces when they opened the bags, “ said Izzie. “Since these kids move a lot, I know that no matter what, they will always have the same place to rest their head at night,” she said.

Thank you Izzie, for a job well done - and for making a difference for children in your community!
