For more than 90 years, the Marks JCH of Bensonhurst has served the Brooklyn Jewish community and New Yorkers throughout our city with compassion, creativity, and vision. We have been an anchor to help people connect, build skills, learn, celebrate, and lift themselves out of poverty towards better futures.
Our mission continues, our commitment to our community endures, and we are working harder than ever. But, in this unprecedented global crisis, the work and the needs are radically different. As of today:
- 50% of families have lost part of their income, and 25% have lost all household income.
- 30% of families worry that they will not be able to put food on the table.
- 700 Holocaust Survivors who, after all they have endured, are now virtually cut off from the outside world.
The Marks JCH has always been a bold leader. We find new solutions to help people build better lives – which is exactly what we are doing now, serving as a steadfast resource to help some of the most vulnerable New Yorkers get through this crisis. But we cannot do it without your help.
As sources of income from the city, state and partner organizations become unavailable or uncertain, we must turn to our friends and supporters for the donations that will enable us to keep helping our community. Please consider making a donation to the Marks JCH, which will help children, families, and the elderly in this unprecedented time of need.
