Maybe Mrs Scheiner could give some shopping tips to the readers of COLlive. Think about it; a pot of barley soup could be made for the same price as a box of cookies. 4 dozen eggs is about the same cost as a box of junkie cereal.

Many of these 200 famalies might be eligible for food stamps and they aren’t even aware of that. Even if you work and have a ateady income depending on the size of your famaly you may be able to get food stamps. So check out these hotline #’s:

If it were not for Mrs. Scheiner’s generosity we would have to go in to debt just to buy the bare necessities for Yom Tov. Me and my husband both work on the books (so we are not eligible for food stamps), but with a growing family (B”H), high rent, and high Yeshiva tuition it is just very hard. So from the bottom of our hearts we thank you, we can now go in to Yom Tov breathing a little easier!!
