Angels Undercover and Laces of Love are the 2012 recipients
On Tuesday, December 11, the Jewish Federation of Collier County presented its 2012 Human Needs Award to Angels Undercover and Laces of Love. Angels Undercover provides underwear, socks and school uniforms to school children in need. Laces of Love provides shoes to disadvantaged children in Collier County. Each organization also received a check for $2,400 from the Federation.
In 2003, the Federation Board and its Community Relations Committee established a “Fund for Human Needs” to recognize organizations for their generous spirit and service to the entire community. It was another way for Jews in Collier County, as represented by their Federation, to practice tikkun olam, “bettering the world.” Past recipients have included the Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Ronald McDonald Caremobile, the Shelter for Abused Women and Children, Baby Basics, Inc., Bedtime Bundles, Redlands Migrant Christian Association, Catholic Charities, St. Vincent de Paul Society, the NAACP, and the Collier County Education Foundation.
