Queens, NY – Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D, WF-Queens) announced $50,000 in funding she allocated to Commonpoint Queens. The state investment will be used to provide food deliveries for seniors and families in need this holiday season.
“As the holiday season approaches, it is crucial that we look out for those in need,” said Assemblywoman Rozic. “Commonpoint Queens’ dedication to providing culturally appropriate food packages to Queens residents is essential year-round and even more during the pandemic. I am proud to be able to support their continued efforts.”
"We are so incredibly grateful for the partnership and generosity of Assemblymember Rozic, who is constantly providing hope and resources for our vulnerable neighbors," said Danielle Ellman, CEO of Commonpoint Queens. "Thanks to this support, we will be able to provide high-quality meals, essential home items, and unquantifiable holiday spirit for hundreds of isolated older adults in our community."
Commonpoint Queens is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of individual, family and communal life throughout Queens. In addition to their food delivery program, their services include community programming, educational initiatives, and cultural events. Rozic has long supported their work both through state funding and by volunteering to deliver food packages personally.
