NEW YORK | On November 27 and 28, Seeds of Peace held its annual Thanksgiving Retreat in New York City at the AllianceBernstein offices.
During the seminar, participants welcomed the newest American Seeds into the program.
The seminar also focused on preparing initiatives and setting priorities for the 2010 programming agenda. The American Seeds heard lectures from guest speakers as well as participated in workshops and committee meetings focusing on fundraising, community service, and the website.
Seeds elected 12 of their peers to positions on the American Seeds Program Council.
This year’s Thanksgiving Retreat included an exciting and rewarding new component: a community service project that took place at the JCC in Manhattan on November 28 during which Seeds prepared sack lunches for the homeless.
In an incredible show of support, Mr. Paul Bernstein agreed to match the American Seeds fundraising efforts, dollar for dollar.
Thanks to all the efforts of the Seeds, especially Hannah Gross, for making the conference a huge success.
