WASHINGTON (Oct. 14)
The Pioneer Women, a Labor Zionist organization, announced today a new two-year fund raising quota of $3 million to support its social service projects in Israel. This represents a new record for the 44-year-old organization. The 600 delegates to the 21st biennial convention pledged to support the new objective. The previous was $2.5 million. The 50,000 member organization supports almost 1,000 social service projects aiding youth, women and children in Israel. These include nurseries, kindergartens, vocational education schools, community centers and Arab women’s clubs.
