After securing a gift from a local philanthropist, Righteous Fundraising CEO Zalmen Hertz and CHJCC’s Devorah Scheiner brought much-needed assistance to Crown Heights families before Yom Tov.
As Crown Heights families grapple with the soaring costs of food and household goods amid rising inflation, מעות חיטים is more necessary than it has been in many years.
For many local families, the soaring cost of food and household goods has turned the challenge of preparing for Pesach from difficult to nearly impossible financially. Righteous Fundraising Team has fielded hundreds and hundreds of requests for help — requests they are determined will not go unanswered.
Righteous CEO Zalman Hertz secured an anchoring gift from a local philanthropist, and hundreds of families have already received yom tov aid packages containing fish, meat and chicken, produce, grocery staples and more.
The distribution is being overseen by legendary baalas chesed Devorah Scheiner of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, who for decades has stood at the helm of assisting local families and individuals in need.
