Maccabi Hunter Haifa joined in on positively impacting youth for Good Deeds Day on Tuesday. Maccabi’s Trevor Gaskins and Tal Aviram visited the Ahava Village for Children and Youth located in Kfar Bialik to meet with the students from the boarding school.
The Ahava Village for Children and Youth has been providing services to children and at-risk youth for more than 100 years. “Ahava” is an educational therapeutic system that provides holistic solutions for the advancement of about 250 children, youth at risk in six main centers.
The players were warmly greeted by the children, as Gaskins and Aviram shared their experiences as professional athletes. After, the players participated in a basketball scrimmage with the students on the school playground.
“I was very excited to meet and get to know the students,” said Gaskins. “In the United States, I also volunteer with children, and I am happy that I am continuing these blessed activities in Israel as well.”
“The players’ arrival at the boarding school immediately swept the students into the basketball court,” added Roi Shifron, the Sports Coordinator of the boarding school. “Tal and Trevor were amazing, answered every question and signed autographs for each child. The students felt loved.”
