OU volunteers aid JCC pantry


Teenage volunteers from the Orthodox Union’s NCSY youth program helped stock the food pantry at the JCC of the Rockaway Peninsula, last Tuesday in Far Rockaway, with fresh produce, oil, matzoh ball soup mix, eggs, chickens and more.

This is the first year that the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty teamed up with the OU to ensure that poor and near-poor kosher homes in the New York area are empowered to celebrate Passover with joy and dignity, said the OU’s Stephen Steiner.
