Jewish social service agency provides holiday goods, resources to Stamford community
The people at Schoke Jewish Family Service of Fairfield County are helping people get ready for the holidays by distributing Thanksgiving meals and pantry packages for hundreds of families this holiday season.
They distributed Thanksgiving meals and pantry packages for more than 250 families in Stamford on Thursday.
Since 1978, the Elayne and James Schoke Jewish Family Service of Fairfield County has been all about assisting families and the community.
Local officials joined volunteers to help load cars to make the deliveries.
Schoke Jewish Family Service runs a kosher food pantry, but they serve anyone who needs assistance.
Hanukkah begins Sunday, Nov. 28. The pantry is also giving their Jewish clients potatoes, oil, and latke mix.
"I'm happiest just seeing people get food. We have people coming up who really have no other way to support themselves, no other way to purchase food for the holidays and it's just a tremendous feeling to be able to give people what they need," said Matt Greenberg, President & CEO of Schoke Jewish Family Service of Stamford.
