Sandra Kessler

Personal Statement:
"My relationships with many of the gown recipients has continued for over 6 years! We have serviced more than 225 high schools and many community members in the tri-state area.

I would like to dedicate the community service and scholarship phase of Catherine's Closet to the memory of my father, Jonas Schreiber, who taught me to always pursue my dreams and not to worry about anything. The Johnson family has helped me deal with my loss. It was amazing to have Renee Johnson give the eulogy for my father with three Orthodox Rabbis and one Conservative Rabbi present! Her words spoke to the soul of my father. Our families will always be united and that is the mission of Catherine's Closet-- to unite people together and help them gain strength from their losses."

-Dr. Sandy Kessler
