I agree with you MrR, nothing worse then humiliating a needy but proud family or person for some publicity pics.

There would have to be alternate PR ways, then to demoralize someone's self-esteem by letting the world know this family is poor and wouldn't survive without the Healy Foundation.
It a cheap and nasty way of doing charity work, but fits in perfectly with the JC culture of doing business.

No, but their could have been a story written without the photo op.Maybe those kids were embarrassed to be singled out as in need of help.Giving a kid a bike for christmas is one thing but the photo op with the checks seemed in poor taste.

Healy Foundation feeds needy families
Friday, December 22, 2006

The Jerramiah T. Healy Charitable Foundation handed out $41,250 worth of food vouchers to needy families in Jersey City this week.

"Our mission is to help the needy in Jersey City," foundation chairman James Morley said. "The board members agreed it would be good to give it to needy families around Christmastime."

The Shop-Rite vouchers - worth $250 each - were distributed Wednesday to the families of 165 economically disadvantaged students; five from each of Jersey City's 33 public schools, officials said.

Guidance counselors and principals identified the families, said Jersey City school district spokesman Gerard Crisonino.

Shop-Rite donated $9,900 toward the vouchers, Morley said.

Earlier this year, the one-year-old foundation netted $65,000 at a golf tournament held on its behalf at the Liberty National Golf Course and pulled in $20,000 at a fund-raiser held last month.

The foundation has roughly $35,000 left in its account, he said.
