Sun Youth Signs Three Year Agreement With Federation CJA

Federation CJA commits $99,000 to Sun Youth’s home delivery program


Sun Youth recently confirmed a grant by Federation CJA that will help maintain and expand Sun Youth’s kosher home delivery program. Thanks to Federation CJA’s generous grant of $99,000 (a commitment of $33,000 annually over three years), Sun Youth will be able to expand and continue the program to meet emergency needs of its beneficiaries.


For nearly two decades Sun Youth has delivered food to people who otherwise would not be able to obtain it. The home delivery program was designed to meet emergency food needs of people facing reduced mobility and social isolation who are referred by a health professional. Many of the people assisted are low income elderly people and are physically unable to make the trip to Sun Youth to receive food supplies. A decrease in one’s mobility is a difficult challenge in itself and can only be amplified if one is facing that challenge alone.


Sun Youth is pleased to be recognized by Federation CJA as a vital organization serving Montreal’s vulnerable populations, a key area of priority for Federation CJA. For close to a century, Federation CJA has acted as the Jewish community’s safety net, raising and distributing funds in order to positively impact thousands of lives.


“Sun Youth would like to express its utmost gratitude to Federation CJA,” said Sun Youth’s Assistant Executive Vice-President and Director of Emergency Services & Communications Tommy Kulczyk. “This new partnership will strengthen the organization’s commitment to caring and sharing with this city’s most vulnerable people.”
