COJO-SI Kicks Off Summer 2020 With Summer Fruit and Vegetable Distribution

On Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at the Belzer Shtieble located in the Manor Heights section of Staten Island, the Staten Island Council of Jewish Organizations kicked off the summer with a summer fruit and vegetable distribution.

Mendy Mirocznik, thanked Reb Arye Grunzweig, Reb Pincus Orlander and Reb Dovid Meir  Weber for their support, encouragement and zeal in opening the Belzer Shtieble for this important distribution that helped feed many of our community members and friends.

Mirocznik thanked Ari Weiss, Chairman of the COJO Security Committee and Coordinator of the Staten Island Shomrim for organizing the Shomrim and for their assistance in making the summer fruit and vegetable distribution the success that it was.

It is only through, “collaborative team work and by bringing community together we are able to build comradery, the foundation for a better and more cohesive community. This is the foundation that is the pillar that makes Staten Island such a wonderful warm community. This is the source of energy that will help us overcome the challenges of the Covid 19 Pandemic that we currently face. This will give us the resilience to rebuild even stronger.”  

Scott Maurer, ceo and executive vice-president of COJO remarked, “that the summer fruit and vegetable distribution is one facet of COJO’s pantry services. We look forward to continuing our pantry services to make certain that our community members receive the food support that is needed during these difficult times. Together by helping each other we will succeed.
