NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (March 30, 2018)—On Thursday, March 29th, the day before Passover, Tiktin Real Estate Investment Services (TREIS) purchased and donated fresh Passover foods and supplies to the newly expanded Jewish Community Services (JCS) Kosher Food Bank at 15455 West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach.
According to JCS, the demand for fresh produce, meats and goods that meet the specific dietary laws for Passover is particularly high. TREIS pulled together a team of volunteers who spent the day purchasing and donating non-perishable staples and canned goods, fresh produce, meat and frozen items to meet those requirements.
This day of volunteering served as the kick-off for TREIS’ philanthropic initiative campaign, which serves to partner the firm with various local nonprofit organizations throughout the year. Following the donation, Bonnie Schwartzbaum, director of the JCS Kosher Food Bank, led a guided tour of the facility for all of the volunteers.
“Having grown up in North Miami Beach and now as I raise my own children here, this city is very special to me,” stated Adam J. Tiktin, president and broker, TREIS. “JCS is a remarkable organization that works extremely hard to provide for those in need, and they rely on the community for support. Having the ability to give back at such an important time such as Passover is very meaningful, and I am proud of my team for supporting this important initiative,” he added.
The JCS Kosher Food Bank is the only food bank in South Florida to which those who observe kosher (kashrut) dietary laws can turn. JCS’ Kosher Food Bank provides food to more than 380 families and nearly 100 Holocaust survivors on a monthly basis.
Kosher Food Bank recipients are able to select and ‘shop’ during pre-arranged, scheduled appointments to ensure privacy and confidentiality. Kosher Food Bank supplies critically important food items and other daily necessities, as well as evaluates clients’ overall needs and arranges for appropriate support services. Because dignity is of the utmost concern, private one-on-one appointments are scheduled at convenient times.
