Capital Health recently received a donation of gift baskets by 12-year-old Eliana Fastag-Rosenfield. Eliana spearheaded a Community Service Project in collaboration with her upcoming Bat Mitzvah in 2023. She spent two months collecting close to 300 gifts to date – from books and toys, to clothes and gift certificates – and soliciting from all members of the community through family, friends and local businesses.
“I am inspired to bring joy to children who are in the hospital and fighting for their health this holiday season. I understand it is very difficult to stay in the hospital for such a long amount of time, so that’s why I decided to send these gifts to as many children as I can,” said Eliana.
As part of her Bat Mitzvah, Eliana embraced the opportunity to devote a community service project to children while engaging in learning opportunities and showcasing corporate philanthropy.
“Jewish tradition teaches that life requires us to perform acts of mitzvot (good deeds) and tzedakah (charity) and gemilut chasidim (acts of loving-kindness),” said Eliana’s father, Lee Rosenfield. “She chose to undertake this project now because she wants to bring joy and cheer to children who are ill and will be in the hospital this holiday season.”
“Our community partnerships are a great asset and truly benefit patient care during this season of giving, as well as throughout the year. Capital Health is very fortunate to have caring and compassionate friends and neighbors. We thank the Rosenfield family for their outpouring of generosity this holiday season,” said Suzanne Borgos, Capital Health’s Chief Strategy Officer.
