Frontline workers at a Manhattan Beach nursing home enjoyed desserts on-the-house courtesy of a southern Brooklyn community group hoping to show their appreciation for the dedicated workers during the ongoing pandemic. 

“Individually and collectively you deserve the recognition and appreciation of all people for the care and service you have provided during this time of extreme physical and emotional trauma to so many as a result of the pandemic,” said Maurice Kolodin, president of Shorefront Partnership Alliance.

With contributions from a slew of southern Brooklyn representatives, the good samaritans gifted hundreds of kosher donuts from Dunkin Donuts to feed the nearly 300 workers at Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care on June 25. 

Kolodin and Stephen Moran, vice president of the Shorefront Partnership Alliance, were joined by State Senator Andrew Gounardes, District Leader Ari Kagan (who was also representing Councilman Mark Treyger), District Leader Margarita Kagan and Lenny Markh, chief of staff to Assemblyman Steven Cymbowitz, for the dessert giveaway.
