    My name is Nico, and I am an intern at Congresswoman Grace Meng’s Washington office. Our office is compiling contact information for pantries in the district. Could you share the contact of the pantry director?

    Hello Sir/Madam,

    Myself Daniel, from an Internet Marketing Company.

    I would like to tell you some points about your online business. I hope you won’t mind spending only 2-3 minutes to have a look at the following lines:

    It seems you’ve been spending budget with sponsored listing or PPC.

    In PPC, you may get the sales but only after paying a certain amount every time and if you stop paying, then the sales will have vanished soon.

    In SEO, You need to spend the budget for a few months. Once keywords will be on the first page of Google, you can get satisfied traffic for a long time.

    90% of users like Organic results over the sponsored ones because these results are more relevant and valuable. So just imagine how many valuable customers you are losing by not focusing on organic search results.

    By investing a few months in SEO, you can see drastic changes in your website internally and externally. We’ll show you TOP Rankings in your keywords, link popularity, organic traffic and many more…

    After reviewing your website. I noticed some major on-page and off-page issues need to be fixed soon. For more information about your site errors, please respond to my email.

    I would be happy to provide you Complete Site Analysis Report (free of cost) with our Company Profile, Work Experience, and Client Testimonials.

    Our main AIM is customer satisfaction. We are not like others. We’ve limited customers and make it sure they are really happy with our performance.

    You may be interested with Big Big Companies but I can say they’re taking money only showing their company brand to customers; otherwise, the result part is Zero. The decision is yours!

    We wish you the best of luck and looking forward to a long and healthy business relationship with you and your company.

    Waiting for your positive response…

    Best Regards,

    Daniel Jason

    I am a volunteer at the masbia of Rego Park- the food is wonderful, chef Rubin is the best, Ariel is a personable and capable boss and everyone that works there and goes to eat there are very nice. This past Tuesday and Wednesday was a minor exception- the group from a Baptist church of the state of Georgia had very ambitious hard working young people but the adult ‘chaparones’ were inconsiderate and did not take direction from senior staff near at all. As a result, for the first and only time since i have been volunteering there (about the beginning of this year 2019) a half full pot of soup was left on the countertop over night. Of course the soup had to be thrown out but the implications of the unsanitary situation is something that NEVER happens on chef Ruben and Ariels watch. Sone fellow with a crazy-looking long wild grey-white beard was actually trying to direct senior staff INCLUDING manager Ariel, it was the most rude, obnoxious behavior i have ever seen except maybe the once in a -blue -moon drunk that has had to be escorted out. The young people were great, they worked doing everything that needed to be done, were polite wonderful volunteers but as a person from a family of successful restaurateurs i hope i never see the rude unclean adults that were a part of that group again at masbia.

    I am contacting you after reading an article in which Masbia was mentioned. I wanted to express my appreciation & gratitude for the courage your employees showed in addressing an attack happening outside of your business. It takes strength of character to stand up to a large crowd, call out the actions of others, & intercede on the behalf of others, even when it is clearly needed, when that could place yourself in harm’s way.

    I will be placing a donation to your organization in honor of your employee’s action & for the mission of your business. We are all humans & we are all in this together. #BeTheChange

    My name is Amira I am reaching out on behalf of Hunger Free America to see if you are interested in receiving further details about partnering with us for our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Serve-A-Thon, which we’ve expanded to a full week of service! I would love to promote your work and recruit volunteers for a service opportunity to help advance your mission as part of the 2019 Serve-A-Thon during January 14th-21st. Our goal is to mobilize a record number of volunteers and continue to raise awareness on food justice issues.

    We would like to serve during your Friday volunteer hours.

    We’re looking forward to seeing if we can help connect volunteers with your organization’s work and continuing to collaborate in the fight against hunger.

    Yours in service,

    Amira Manderson

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    I am Israeli researcher and inventor. D.Sc., chemist. I am writing to you regarding my latest invention – water desalination without consumption of electrical energy or fuel, neither using complicated solar systems (Israel patent N. 209366). One of the goals of my invention – to solve the problem of water scarcity in Israel. As you certainly know, the situation is very hard, Kinneret lake is practically diluted, and the government asks people to economy of fresh water

    Of course, my invention can help not only Israel but all countries suffering of water scarcity.

    My invention is presented in the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo as project “Rain by our hands”—2#/ This link is available by Google-Chrome, Microsoft-Edge, Mozilla-Firefox or Safari.

    I will appreciate your advising me whether or not you can support my project.

    Best regards,

    Freddy Romm, D.Sc.,

    Does my being a vegetarian pose a problem with offering meals or weekend packages at any of your three sites? I take in milk and egg products as well as being Kosher. Would the meals be so marked?

    Temple Israel of Lawrence has a group of high school students that volunteers to go downtown to the soup kitchen and the school director would prefer to take them to a local soup kitchen. Would we be able to arrange a time for our students to volunteer there?
