Connect2 is honored and overjoyed to have been able to team up with Mitzvah Man volunteers to coordinate Mishloach Manot deliveries to over 80 Holocaust survivors we cant wait to share more pictures of beaming survivors with their special Purim treat! Thank you to ALL our volunteers. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
"As Director of Connect2, I had the privilege of accompanying, Connect2 volunteer, Amanda Guttman on a visit to two of our survivors, Mr and Mrs. Jon and Blanche Ranz. Brooklyn News12 was there to record this visit. This is just a glimpse, and just one example of how valuable and mutually beneficial the survivor /volunteer visits and relationships really are"
One of our clients, survivor Hymie Steinmetz, spoke at the New School in NYC at a seminar given on holocaust literature . The professor, Shamar Hill, is a volunteer of our Connect2 visiting program as well.
