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.
