RJG is Proud to Support Dinner For Kids

RJG Supports Dinners for Kids

Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP is proud to support Dinners for Kids! This organization, founded nine years ago by David and Edna Tevet, has provided more than 300,000 meals to feed insecure children in the Greater Wyoming Valley. Currently more than 160 children receive 6 dinner meals each week, 52 weeks per year, delivered to their homes by volunteers at no cost to their families.

This is possible thanks to the financial support of our community and the many volunteers who package and deliver the meals. Contributing to this essential financial support, the Dinners for Kids third annual dinner will be held on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 on Misericordia University’s campus @ 5:30 PM.

We would also like to congratulate Misericordia University’s Dr. Thomas & Vanessa Botzman, as well as Joe DeVizia, who will be honored at the event! To learn more or donate, please visit www.Dinners4Kids.org.

Congratulations to the Wyoming Valley Children’s Association (WVCA) on their successful Cooking for a Cause event! Cooking For A Cause is an annual event hosted by the Brotherhood of Chefs, an organization that was formed around 10 years ago, made up of regional professional chefs, who wanted to make a difference in children’s lives who attend WVCA. Through their passion for food, the Cooking For A Cause event was formed and the evening features a gourmet, progressive dinner – where all proceeds from the event are donated to WVCA programs. The WVCA provides the highest quality early childhood education to ensure the greatest developmental potential of all children in partnership with their families, including therapeutic and support services as needed.
