In the midst of all the uncertainty about Pesach, Mrs. Devorah Scheiner is preparing her annual Pesach appeal for the Yom Tov fund.
As always, hundreds of cases of chickens, and hundreds of pounds of fish have been reserved.
Now all she needs is the generous support of Crown Heights residents to finalize the orders. Hopefully, everyone will be a little more generous than last year, to keep pace with the demand. This year more than ever we need to make sure that no family should have to worry about making Pesach.
You can donate online at http://chcentral.org/donate/ .
Every dollar received goes only to buy food. All overhead is covered by the CHJCC.
Here are some of the “Thank You”s from last year’s distribution.
“Dear Mrs. Scheiner:
I want to thank you for the wonderful way you give tzedakah. Over the years, you have helped my family with cases of chicken and gefilte fish, as well as other meat and dairy products to make sure that we can make Pesach…
You make sure that everyone is helped and treated with dignity. You ask people with cars to help those who don’t have one, so they can get the food home…
The food you give is fresh and first quality so all the people you help can have only a first class Yom Tov…
Some of my children have “special needs”. When they hear your voice on the phone calling us to come pick up the Yom Tov foods or for a special event, their faces light up, because you are the Bubby they never had….
And from the principal of one of the schools in Crown Heights:
…While we care for others, a silent population goes unnoticed. Yes, our neighbors…
Luckily, for them and for us, Mrs. Devorah Scheiner has their back…
… I watched her labor last year, providing food to our needy parents (and some of our teachers) and making sure they can enjoy Yom Tov.
… So, in addition to putting our hands together to praise her, we need to put our hands into our pockets and support this cause “ומבשרך על תתעלם”.
Thank you Crown Heights for supporting this wonderful cause to ensure that your neighbors are able to look forward to Pesach without anxiety.
