Good deeds for better living

Beautiful Israel volunteers are constantly on the go. When not busy evaluating the achievements of organizations participating in CBI’s national beautification competitions, they dedicate their time to doing good for their local  communities. Here are just two examples from around the country.

Research shows that dirt and neglect fuel crime and social disarray, reducing the residents' sense of connectedness and commitment to their neighborhood. A tidy, well-groomed environment makes an important contribution to quality of life.


Over several months, volunteers, joined by students from the Overseas Studies program at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), worked alongside local residents to improve the appearance of their surroundings and prepare for the "Beautiful Garden" competition. Based on appearance and cultivation, the top score went to a building at 55 King Solomon St. in Haifa, but the real winners were all the residents and volunteers who shared an enriching, fulfilling experience while upgrading their living environment.

They helped renovate and paint its club room and outdoor benches, while also refreshing its garden with new greenery. Residents of the home showed their appreciation by treating the volunteers and soldiers to tasty home-baked cakes and pies. It was an exciting event for everyone.
