Facing the challenges of proposed budget cuts in New York City, driven by inflation and population growth, Compassion Coalition and Southside United HDFC have joined forces to support the Brooklyn community. These proposed budget cuts could significantly impact the availability of services in areas like Williamsburg, where Southside United HDFC operates.
In response, Compassion Coalition has sent $200,000 worth of fresh produce, food products to Brooklyn. This move is designed to counter the potential shortfall in city services, ensuring that residents, especially those facing economic challenges, have access to essential items.
Southside United HDFC, known as “Los Sures®,” has been a key player in the South Side of Brooklyn for over four decades, focusing on building rehabilitation and community services such as a senior center and food pantry. Their established presence in the community makes them an effective partner in distributing Compassion Coalition’s aid.
This collaboration is a direct response to the financial challenges posed by the proposed budget cuts in New York City, aiming to support the Brooklyn community during this period of economic uncertainty.

Southside United HDFC would like to thank North Brooklyn Food Relief and Giveback to distribute food to local residents.
