St Paul and St Andrew is a vital part of the fabric of New York City. Home to four churches and a large synagogue (Congregation B'nai Jeshurun), this century-old building also houses New York's largest emergency food program (West Side Campaign Against Hunger), a shelter for homeless women, a large tutoring program. One of our kitchens provides meals-on-wheels for seniors on the Upper West Side. The 115 year-old landmark is in urgent need of repair. The roof, front steps, sidewalks and other areas all need to be fixed in the next several months.
