I would love to let your readers know how important Tzedaka is.
You see, the tzedaka I receive is done in a sensitive and meaningful way. I do not know who my benefactors are as they give simply knowing that others will surely benefit from this worthy cause.
Mrs. Devorah Scheiner has been an incredible resource for indigent families. I have received phone calls during the Yom Tov seasons to pick up food that is not only high quality but incredibly generous in quantities.
When my son had his Bar Mitzvah, I phoned Mrs. Scheiner and she discreetly gave me shoe vouchers. She even wanted to know if my makeup and shaitle were being done!
Most recently, I was given a generous sum of money to go to Gourmet Glatt and was able to buy my family food with dignity and reassurance that I was able to afford it. I was able to buy meat and beautiful vegetables. When I made suppers for the week my kids immediately noticed the upgrade of our dinner menu.
As a divorced mother, having certain foods grade my table is nothing short of a luxury. I simply budget and rely on incredible organizations to help me feed my family.
I am not on public assistance as I am considered what you call, the working poor. I am like everyone else on the outside, even on the inside, but financial burden is on my shoulders alone, regardless of how I carry myself or how brightly I smile, no one knows the struggles I face on a daily basis. My income barely meets my monthly financial obligational needs.
Personally, I have never been turned down by Mrs. Scheiner whenever I called for help. She truly is a remarkable woman who advocates and graciously assists families in need. She has an enormous heart. She truly does care.
I hope when people are giving tzedaka, they will give it Mrs. Scheiner. Every dime of tzedaka she raises is tax deductible and goes straight to needy families. From the divorced woman, to the struggling intact families. Regardless of familiar circumstances, Mrs. Scheiner helps these families in time of need. If there ever is a worthy organization, it is hers.
