Can you lighten the load this Tishrei?
It’s September. For hundreds of people in our community, it means more than just sending their kids back to school.
It’s a time of high expenses, including school supplies, tuition, new shoes and uniforms and the upcoming costs of Tishrei.
Can you help lighten the load for people in our community this Tishrei?
Righteous Fundraising will be working with local Crown Heights stores to bring people relief this month. They will give local grocery store owners money to pay off some of people’s overdue grocery bills.
The Grocery Relief Fund will be administered anonymously, leaving recipients with their dignity intact. No embarrassing asks need to be made, and all payments will be made discreetly.
Righteous Fundraising explained the impetus for this campaign. “There are so many people struggling financially in Crown Heights. I’ve spoken to store owners, and they shared that the number of people who cannot pay off their bills has skyrocketed this year.
And so I thought to myself, how can I help? How can we, as a community, make a difference? And I realized that every dollar counts. If someone goes to the store and discovers their bill has been reduced by $180, by $300, by $500.
Whatever the amount, it provides a little breathing room during a month that is already financially stressful.”
