Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder has provided a state grant in the amount of $5K to assist the Jewish Community Council of the Rockaway Peninsula (JCCRP) and allow them to continue their wide range of excellent services to the Rockaway community.
“This funding will go a long way to help our local chesed organization continue to provide the relief and services that our community desperately needs,” said Assemblyman Goldfeder. “The JCCRP has always been a strong community partner and I know this funding will be put to good use to help serve our families. I want to thank Nathan Krasnovsky, the staff, and board for their tireless efforts on behalf of the community.”
Since 1972, the JCCRP has been providing services to those in need and advocating on issues of concern to the community. Ranging from the elderly to the poor or near poor, the JCCRP has met each individual’s needs by providing food, clothing, education, or offering other services to help improve their lives and wellbeing.
“This additional state funding from Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder will help the JCCRP fulfill our mission and help a community still struggling to recover from Sandy,” said Nathan Krasnovsky, executive director of JCCRP. “We work tirelessly to assist individuals in need and appreciate the support that will allow us to reach more families throughout the community.”
