SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- UJA-Federation of New York's Scarsdale Women's Philanthropy, equipped with 200 pounds of tuna salad and egg salad, recently came together to make 750 sandwiches for hungry New Yorkers. 

More than 35 women came to the Jewish Community Center of Mid-Westchester in Scarsdale, a UJA-Federation beneficiary agency, to assemble and pack the sandwiches, which will be distributed to clients of the Bronx Jewish Community Council (BJCC), another UJA-Federation beneficiary agency. BJCC’s food pantry, which serves anyone in need, is the third largest in the borough, serving more than 3,700 meals per month, with demand increasing each year. 

“This is a tough time of year for a lot of people. It’s cold outside and, for many who struggle to pay for heat, it’s cold inside, too,” said Jodi Boockvar, who served as chair of the event along with Brooke Fina and Leslie Perelman. “That’s why what we’re doing here is really important: For many of BJCC’s clients, these sandwiches mean the difference between having a meal or going without.”
