CSSY is more than an organization that provides food for Shabbos and Yom Tov. We are here to help whenever a crisis arises. With no one else to turn to, your friends, relatives and neighbors turn to CSSY. We are here and ready 24/7 365 days for whatever comes our way.
8 Nights! 8 Reasons!
Each night of Chanukah we will highlight the ways in which CSSY assists our community. Eight nights of Chanukah are Eight reasons your support will make a difference in our community!
Reason #1: Food Vouchers
Rochel’s Story: “Thank you so much for the food vouchers! I just had my debit card declined at the local food store for insufficient funds for a $15 purchase of groceries, it was truly embarrassing. Then I came home to find $150 worth of food vouchers from CSSY in the mail. You just made my day so much brighter. Thank you!”
Reason #2: Cash Grants
“Thank you so much for the generous check we received for Rosh Hashana. My husband and I both work full time. Baruch Hashem we have enough to provide for us and our family of six. However, when it comes to Yom Tov it’s simply too much for us to handle. Thank you for stepping up and providing us with a generous grant so my family and I can have true simchas yom tov.”
Reason #3: Crisis
Sara’s Story: Sixteen-year-old Sara was not doing well in school or at home. Her troubled life exposed her to drugs and other forms of abuse that affected her entire family. The programs available in the tri-state area were not enough to help Sara. CSSY raised enormous funds for Sara to be sent to a special rehab and get the help she needed to turn her life around.
Reason #4: Senior Care
“Dear CSSY, I don’t live in Crown Heights and my uncle, a lonely elderly chossid, had no one to take care of him in the hospital. Not only did you visit him every day in the hospital, but when he came home you made sure he had food and medication until he was well enough to provide for himself.”
Reason #5: Highest Form of Tzedakah
Everything we do is done discreetly and anonymously. You won't see pictures of our benefactors picking up food vouchers for shabbos, or waiting in line for food distributions. At CSSY, we are the epitome of “Matan Beseiser,” the highest form of tzedakah. As chazal explain, “The donors don’t know the benefactors and the benefactors don’t know the donors.”
Reason #6: Funerals
A young mother in our community suddenly passed away. The family has nowhere to turn to for funds for her funeral. Within hours, CSSY raised funds from the community to cover all costs to provide a dignified burial.
Reason #7: Shalom Bayis
A couple in our community struggles with shalom bayis. Their financial struggle adds to the stress and affects their three young children. With nowhere to turn, they come to CSSY who provides them with funds for marriage counseling, assistance for their children, and additional funds to lighten their financial burden.
Reason #8: Your Community
“Aniyei Ircha Kodmim”, the first and foremost tzedaka goes to your community. These are your friends and family. They are relying on YOU. Families in OUR community struggle daily to put food on their table. Please participate and increase your support by giving generously to YOUR community.
