CEO of SGW Properties Helps Project Machal Meet Fundraising Goal
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/20/2015 -- Project Machal, a local food bank initiative by the Marine Park Jewish Community Center, announced that philanthropist Yeshaya Wasserman, Founder and CEO of SGW Properties, has been integral to the success of the project by helping Project Machal meet an ambitious $200,000 fundraising goal on the crowdfunding platform Charidy. Offering significant support and vital personal involvement, as well as crucial matching funds, Mr. Wasserman has enabled Project Machal to reach out to many more needy families in the community.
Project Machal is an innovative campaign which provides families in need with weekly credit at local grocery stores, allowing them to make ends meet at difficult times. It is a discreet and positive alternative to the usual local food pantry model, operated with the utmost respect for recipients' privacy and dignity. This help not only feeds the hungry, it also supports their emotional well-being and sense of belonging in the community.
"Mr. Wasserman's involvement in the local community is making a huge difference to families who are struggling, offering them practical assistance with great sensitivity. This outreach is only possible on such a comprehensive scale thanks to Mr. Wasserman's support. We are grateful to Mr. Wasserman for his deep commitment to Project Machal and the Marine Park JCC." says Shea Rubenstein Founder of The Marine Park JCC.
