Eddie’s Travel is proud to announce an official partnership with Leket Israel whereby Leket will be the charitable beneficiary of Eddie’s Travel programs. Featuring holiday hotel vacations in Israel, luxury cruises and exotic land tours, Eddie’s Travel has been hosting guests from around the world for over two decades.
This first-time charity partnership for Eddie’s Travel will provide regular gifts to the organization raised from pledges made by the guests during their programs. Eddie’s Travel will also introduce a travel option for guests visiting Israel to serve as a Leket volunteer during their time in the country.
Leket Israel rescues excess, nutritious food that would have otherwise been destroyed and redirects it to people in need. Serving as Israel’s umbrella organization for donations of surplus food they provide more than 110 tons of food per week to over 280 soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior citizen centers and other social service organizations around Israel.
“This partnership will allow people enjoying our special vacations and trips to also apply their time to help others in need and give something back to those less fortunate,“ says David Walles, CEO of Eddie’s Travel. “Leket is a tremendous organization doing a great amount for the people of Israel and we’re very proud to help support their important work.”
“We see this partnership with Eddie’s Travel as a great way to enable people from around the world to learn about us and volunteer with us in a hands on way while visiting Israel,” says Joseph Gitler, Executive Director of Leket Israel.
