Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Many years ago, when I moved into a new house, two women appeared at the door with a basket filled with food and packages. They were from a company called Welcome Wagon and their greeting basket was a welcome surprise in the midst of our new move. Although the organization still exists, it doesn’t seem to have the same presence and certainly not in our community.

Kosher Bounty is meant to fill that role, of connecting local vendors with new homeowners to ease their way as they navigate their new community. Perhaps on moving day, receiving a food package from Grand & Essex or a discounted order from Chopstix will save the worry of preparing dinner. A night out at the Doghouse or lunch at Poppies might be just what is needed after a few days of moving, unpacking and setting up the new home. Free dry cleaning at Stroms cleaners will help insure clean shirts and suits for their first Shabbat. A few free training sessions from Underground Training in Tenafly could provide a little me time. The goal is to help the new homeowner learn quickly about services available in the community as well as save a little money right after the cost of a move.

Vendors are happy to offer promotions because they want to welcome new community members as well as introduce them to their services. Kosher Bounty doesn’t charge any fee to the vendor so that the homeowner receives more of a benefit from the vendor. Kosher Bounty will work with local realtors to distribute packages to new homeowners.

In addition to the promotions offered, the package will include listings of important township phone numbers and a directory of participating vendors to use as a guide for services in the new community. As we grow, we plan to include many more vendors including food, entertainment, home needs and others.

If you are a new homeowner in the last three months, ask us for your package. If you are closing on your new home soon, ask your realtor to get you a package. If your realtor doesn’t participate, contact us and we will get you a package. If you are a vendor or a realtor who would like to participate, please let us know.

This is a win for all involved, so please contact David Siegel at [email protected] for further information or visit www.kosherbounty.com
