The group will need housing on Thursday and Friday nights. The group has also asked if we can help transport the kids to and from KBI. The times are as follows:

7:45 Friday morning return the kids to KBI for davening and breakfast.

4:30 Friday afternoon, pick up the kids from KBI so they may get ready for Shabbat.

7:00 Erev Shabbat, get the kids to KBI for Shabbat.

To be announced, Motzai Shabbat, pick the kids up from KBI so they may pack.
