REHUB Raising Funds for The First Baptist Church Food Pantry
Organized by Stephanie Timm
The recipient will be The First Baptist church which runs a food pantry giving out food to locals in need every Saturday. REHUB is partnering with Queens together to not only fundraise but also physically help with handing out purchased food that following Saturday. REHUB, as a real estate team located in Jackson Heights, is looking to give back to our local community in Queens. We appreciate the volunteering effort of The First Baptist Church and look forward to assisting in every way we can.
What is Queens Together?
Queens Together is a non-profit association of independent restaurants supporting each other in business and feeding communities during crises. Their motto is “One Borough. One Voice.”
During the COVID-19 crisis they are building a bridge that connects local restaurants with food relief efforts in their communities. The dollars raised allow restaurants to make real money, pay their workers, fuel the local economy and most importantly do what restaurants do best: care for others with food. That's because the meals and groceries they fund, prepared by these local chefs, go to neighbors facing food and economic insecurity. The work benefits the full circle of the community: from food businesses to those in need to those who donate. This mission will continue beyond COVID-19 and become a tool for future needs and projects.
