Dear Family and Friends,

Friendship Circle provides support for children and teens with special needs and their families. Friendship Circle’s distinctive  approach to volunteering pairs participants with teens to help provide a meaningful, inspirational, and enriching experience for everyone involved. Over the years, I participated in many Friendship Circle events with my family and chose to support the organization in honor of my Bat Mitzvah.

Music has always been a part of my life and something that brings me and my soul tremendous joy.  In honor of my Bat Mitzvah, I am donating a music center and purchased instruments for the kids that can be used every Sunday at Friendship Circle. In addition, over the last few months, I have been volunteering with my four new friends playing music and dancing together. The experience has truly been a gift to me as I have witnessed the power of music to connect people no matter their circumstances.  In lieu of gifts, please consider donating to this amazing organization to further enhance their music program.
