U.S. Rep. Chakka Fattah makes a major grant renewal announcement at the Klein JCC Center City Senior Program; the Klein JCC in the Northeast hosts a packed holiday seder for seniors.
U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah recently made a special appearance at the Klein JCC Center City Senior Program, held at the Jewish Community Services Building in Center City, to make a major grant announcement: a renewal of the three-year federal funding for RSVP at more than $100,000. The program, in cooperation with the Klein JCC in the Northeast, offers tutoring to at-risk children and places thousands of meals with homebound seniors, all with the help of close to a thousand volunteers. Joining the congressman at the announcement are Sue Aistrop (left), director of community services of RSVP/Philadelphia; and Debra Lytre, program officer, Corporation for National and Community Services, which also helps finance RSVP as do the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging. The grant renewal announcement came during March for Meals Month.
