Chabad of Clark County

Since 2007, KMR has partnered with Chabad of Clark County to host A Day of Hope, a benefit for the residents of the Good Family Orphanage in Odessa, Ukraine. The orphanage is a warm, nurturing home to more than 50 children. The orphanage provides shelter, nutritious meals, clean clothing, counseling, tutoring and love.

However, it is a financial reality that the orphanage is often hard-pressed to provide resources beyond these essentials. Extracurricular activities, recreational facilities and specialized medical services like optometric and dental care are not in the core budget.

A Day of Hope offers participants a delicious dinner, great entertainment and a silent auction. The proceeds of this annual benefit have provided the Good Family orphans with a few of the amenities that more fortunate children take for granted, such as athletics,  art classes and holiday gifts. The donations have also paid for  a recreational room, university scholarship and visits from eye doctors and dentists.

Chabad is dedicated to providing every Jew — regardless of background, philosophy, or level of commitment – with opportunities to feel nourished and sustained by the Jewish community. Through outreach, education and a range of social services, Chabad aspires to help every individual and family enhance their awareness, experience and practice of Judaism. The Chabad Jewish Center is a vibrant, dynamic force in Clark County.

“Our community is so appreciative of KMR. Kate and Marty have been dedicated partners in our growth and continue to impact not just the community as a group, but so many of its individuals. The ripple effect of their personal commitment and generosity is immeasurable.”
– Co-Director Mrs. Tzivie Greenberg
