To all supporters of Israel....We need your help! 

The Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities (JFQC) announces a "protective gear" fundraiser to help preserve and protect the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) who are currently engaged in a deadly war with Hamas and Hezbollah. 

The JFQC has teamed up with the non-profit organization BC Lev Echad ( to procure the list of requested and needed protective gear to the men and women of the IDF.  


BC Lev Echad has created an Amazon gift list for JFQC, with items ranging from $23.99 for a tactical pouch to $103.90 for a military uniform:

There is no overhead cost to get these items to Israel.  The items will be packed into special duffle bags and delivered to Chicago where they will be placed in the luggage compartments of El Al Airlines, flown to Israel, and handed to the soldiers by volunteer representatives from BC Lev Echad.
