In 2011, upon the successful completion of its fundraising goals for the 2009-2010 campaign, the FIDF NY Real Estate Division committed $750,000 to support a capital project of major importance: to build a Wellbeing Center at Revaya A Base for Battalion 71 of the 188th Brigade.
This brand new facility will include a club, library, canteen and gym all in one prefabricated structure, and will be able to address a wide variety of the unit’s wellbeing needs. The structure will accommodate up to 140 users in its 2,045 sq. ft. space. The club and canteen give soldiers a place to get a snack, relax, enjoy music or TV and each other’s company, or just unwind. The media room/library provides a quiet place to read or research, and the gym gives them a place to release tension and maintain physical fitness. All of these facilities give the soldiers a chance to enjoy a feeling of comfort and a bit of “home” as they take a break from their daily IDF routine. The combat soldiers deserve a stress-free environment where they can unwind from their strenuous training. Your support today goes directly to the Welbeing Center, providing an invaluable service to the brave men and women of Battalion 71 of the 188th Brigade.
