CQJCC brings neighbors together to help neighbors. Volunteers bring hope and cheer to those who feel forgotten.
As CQJCC enters the summer of 2022, we reflect on our many activities over the last year. True to our mission, we looked out for our vulnerable neighbors with love in the unprecendented Covid-19 era. We saw many eyes–albeit atop masks–light up when we came knocking–
* We recruited 10+ ambassadors to deliver holiday gift packages to their own neighbors, fostering connection and community * We distributed 100 Chanukah gifts, 300 Purim packages, and 100 Shavuot cheesecakes * We partnered with JRoots to promote their Holocaust remembrance programs * We partnered with the Queens Jewish Community Council to deliver Met Council Passover packages * We continue to partner with Beautiful Memories Gemach in New Hyde Park to distribute gently used clothing monthly * In April 2021, we launched webinars in our virtual emotional and spiritual wellness space, which will continue monthly via Zoom and phone Please partner with us in our important work touching vulnerable neighbors in meaningful ways!
