After Soup Kitchen’s Devastating Fire, Laura Curran Shows How Far $375 Can Go

Curran for Nassau Donates $375 to Local Soup Kitchen to Uplift Importance of Direct Cash Payment Relief for All Working Families in Nassau

BALDWIN, NEW YORK - Following her call on the legislature to return early from summer break to vote on the delivery of $375 in direct cash payments for Nassau’s working families, County Executive Laura Curran showed just how far this relief can go.

After learning local soup kitchen NOSH experienced a devastating fire, destroying food supplies and equipment, the County Executive jumped into action. NOSH serves more than 600 families each week on Nassau’s north shore, many of whom are eligible for the Household Assistance Plan proposed by the County Executive.

To answer the urgent needs of NOSH, while uplifting her own proposal to aid working and middle class families impacted by the pandemic, Laura Curran delivered $375 in groceries to support NOSH’s recovery.

“NOSH serves as a cornerstone of Nassau’s north shore, helping families in need for over thirty years. I am glad we could support their recovery efforts after a catastrophic fire destroyed their headquarters. Like NOSH, there are still so many throughout Nassau in dire need of support due to circumstances beyond their control,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran. “This donation offers a powerful representation of the relief some 400,000 households across Nassau will receive through the Household Assistance Plan. $375 in direct cash payments will offer meaningful support for those who need it most, while boosting Nassau’s broader economy. I will continue to do all I can to get this critical relief into the hands of Nassau’s working families.”

The Household Assistance Plan represents one of the many ways Laura Curran is helping all of Nassau’s communities recover from the pandemic. Despite unprecedented challenges caused by COVID-19, Laura Curran guided Nassau to the strongest fiscal outlook in over a decade. With additional aid from the American Rescue Plan, the County Executive is boosting Nassau’s economy by putting surplus funds directly into the pockets of working families.
