A group of Crown Heights residents, headed by Zaki Tamir – Chairman of the CHJCC, have banded together to help Crown Heights with Pesach needs.
This Sunday, March 25, residents may pick up vouchers for produce and other necessities at the CHJCC Office, 387 Kingston Avenue, between the hours of 7 pm and 9 pm.
“Last year, on behalf of the Vaad Hakohol, I distributed two truck-loads of food and every last package was distributed b’h,” Tamir told COLlive. “Last year’s experience has shown me that indeed there are many families that may not need help all year round, but do in fact need help for a holiday that is so expensive, like Pesach.”
Crown Heights residents only, please make sure to bring valid photo ID and proof of address.
Please note that the actual food distribution will be conducted on Wednesday March 28, 2012, 8pm – 10pm. Packages will be given only to ticket holders, as the food will be ordered according to the number of tickets given out.
Volunteers needed for Wednesday night, March 28, from 7 pm to 10:30 pm in Crown Heights. To volunteer please email Avi Werde at [email protected]
Other individuals as well as several organizations are conducting food distributions as well. Among the many distributors are Mrs. Devorah Schiener, Rabbi Benji Stock, and Mr. Joseph Popack.
The food distribution that is being conducted by Bella Vilenkin on behalf of the CHJCC is separate and apart from the one Tamir is conducting.
