NATIONAL COUNCIL OF YOUNG ISRAEL's Fundraiser:

Revamp Young Israel Senior Center of Midwood

THE STORY:

I recently started working as the Assistant Director of the Young Israel Senior Services of Midwood(YISSM). Until I began working here, I didn't know how crucial services, such as this, were.

We serve between 100-150 seniors, over 60 years of age, daily, providing them with a hot nutritious meal, multiple exercise classes (Zumba, Yoga, Tai Chi etc), professional painting instruction, lectures & trips. Everything is provided to the seniors free of cost or with a minimal suggested donation.

Our Mission:
YISSM is committed to providing a warm and inviting "home away from home." YISSM offers seniors of all backgrounds, ethnicity and religion a broad range of nutritional, social, recreational and cultural activities. In addition, we provide the opportunity to feel part of a truly extended family through a broad array of opportunities for personal growth that enable all to maintain an active, stimulating lifestyle.

Fortunately, the program continues to grow. We have increased the amount of exercise classes given weekly, and with that cost of providing these classes has drastically increased. We depend on donations to help keep these classes available.

So that's where you all come in.
We will all get old one day and want a place to spend our retired days. There are many friendships that have been formed here, and I pray that there are places such as Young Israel Senior Services of Midwood when I choose to retire.
Any amount, large or small, will help.

Thank you in advance!
