For families who are struggling to make ends meet under normal circumstances, Pesach is an even more trying time.
The JCC of Marine Park helps ensure that families have the necessary provisions to make Pesach with a program that alleviates the financial burden in numerous ways.
- Every year, hundreds of JCCMP volunteers pack 700 cases of food consisting of grape juice, matzah, fresh produce, and other basic Pesach staples which will be delivered to over 150 families who would otherwise not have food for Yom Tov.
- The JCC of Marine Park also provides these families with vouchers to local supermarkets so they can obtain fresh poultry for Yom Tov.
- A $250 gift card is used to purchase eggs, cottage cheese, milk, and other perishables for Pesach.
