ISRAEL AT WAR
We’re here to help the
7,000 Lone Soldiers serving TO PROTECT AND DEFEND Israel
Creating a community and ensuring that lone soldiers are never alone
Who we are:
The Michael Levin Lone Soldier Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and was established by Mark and Harriet Levin, Michael Levin’s parents. We are fulfilling our mission, and Michael’s dream, to help Lone Soldiers before, during and after their service by providing grants to organizations in Israel serving the needs of lone soldiers. The Foundation is uniquely qualified to find, and fund, those programs and services which make the greatest impact on serving our Lone Soldiers.
What we do:
While they may be called Lone Soldiers, the Michael Levin Lone Soldier Foundation is here to make sure that they are never alone. The Foundation is unique, we have the knowledge and experience to find and fund the programs and services most needed by our Lone Soldiers during ordinary times these include:
- One on one mental health counseling for current and veteran soldiers in need;
- Shabbat and holiday meals served to over 1,500 Lone Soldiers;
- Assistance for injured or sick soldiers to quickly see a medical specialist;
- Seminars educating Lone Soldiers on discharge benefits, budgeting, job search assistance, and CV writing;
- Care packages, and base visits for Lone Soldiers;
- A joint venture providing socks, underwear, hats, towels, and toiletry essentials;
But these are not ordinary times
With Israel at war, The Foundation is stepping up to fund the current emergency needs of our soldiers, and as the war goes on, we are planning for the evolving and changing needs of these brave young men and women defending our homeland.
Right now, The Foundation is sending critical supplies such as tourniquets, hydration packs, energy bars, first aid kits and much more to soldiers on the front lines. With winter upon us, warm winter gear such as jackets, handwarmers and blankets are being distributed to keep our soldiers warm. And as the war continues we are anticipating that mental health counseling will be one of the most significant needs both now and after the war and we’re planning for that.
The Michael Levin Lone Soldier Foundation also provides essential support, advice, and resources to parents of Lone Soldiers. In addition to ensuring that their Lone Soldiers are never alone, we also make sure that’s true for Lone Soldier parents too.
