Resident Magazine updates its readers on the latest news in the five boroughs. Issued in print for over 25 years, it is a household name amongst New Yorkers that reaches multiple generations by being distributed in over 1,000 Manhattan doorman buildings, hotels, health clubs, doctor’s offices and concierge services in addition to being placed in high traffic areas such as Grand Central Station and Madison Avenue.
In the May 2015 issue of Resident Magazine, Cover girl Jean Shafiroff discusses her desire for philanthropy. Jean works on several charitable organizations that includes The New York Women’s Foundation, NYC Mission Society, Couture Council and the French Heritage Society, and other numerous charities. As for what inspires her to work as hard as she does on behalf of New Yorkers, she told the Resident Magazine, “We live in a city where 30% of the children live at or below the poverty level. I can’t just go on living here and remain idle. I must try to facilitate change. We live in an age when the middle class is having a tougher time to survive.” In association with her philanthropic duties, Jean has also hosted events in honor of the entertainment industry both in New York and Los Angeles.
