This week, Seasons Lakewood, in honor of it’s opening, sponsored the entire week of Tomchei Shabbos Lakewood deliveries.
Rabbi Yaakov Trainer, Director of Development at Tomchei Shabbos of Lakewood praised Seasons’ efforts which are especially appreciated in today’s unpredictable economy.
“In a difficult economic climate, the demand for our services has increased, and it becomes difficult to divert our attention to fundraising activities without losing focus of our one goal: providing food for Lakewood families in need,” Rabbi Trainer told Matzav.com. “When an organization like Seasons reaches out to us and takes the burden of an entire week’s deliveries off of our shoulders, it’s an unexpected and much appreciated relief.”
In addition to sponsoring the week’s deliveries, Seasons provided physical support and assistance with Tomchei Shabbos deliveries.
“We thought about doing a ‘grand opening’ with all of the fanfare that goes with that, but that’s not what Seasons is about at all,” explained Seasons CEO Mayer Gold. “We couldn’t think of a better way to start a relationship with our new community than by using the money and effort we would otherwise spend on a grand opening to assist with one of Lakewood’s most vital needs through one of its most cherished organizations, Tomchei Shabbos.”
Ephraim Chase, manager of Seasons Lakewood, points out, “This isn’t a one-off thing for us. We are very much about becoming a contributing member of the Lakewood community. Our “Seasons’ Supports” campaign highlights a different tzedakah every two months and invites our customers and employees to join us in supporting these organizations through in-store donations and hands-on opportunities. The very first tzedakah to be supported through the campaign is Tomchei Shabbos of Lakewood.”
Rabbi Trainer added, “As we turn our attention to the needs of the community for Purim and Pesach, it is comforting to know that Lakewood has a new supporter, neighbor and friend in Seasons. On behalf of the hundreds of families that Seasons and Tomchei Shabbos have helped feed this week, I extend a heartfelt thank you and Yasher Koach to the entire Seasons family.”
