The Purim story recounts two ways individuals can aid their communities - through matanot l'evyonim, giving charity to the poor, and mishloach manot, presenting gifts of food or drink to family, friends and others. Met Council embodies these traditional principles of Purim each day by feeding, housing, comforting and advocating for New Yorkers in need. Especially now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment, isolation, and food insufficiency have skyrocketed, and Met Council has met the need. Help us make it feel like Purim year-round for our clients by supporting our front-line efforts. Thank you for your generous support.
