I would like a full English translation of this paragraph from the Sefer Zhvil Yizkor book. I am most interested in the sentence about Shachna Grinfeld.

Shakhne Grynfeld is mentioned in a list of people that distinguished themselves for their charitable work in the community. The only thing said about him is that he was a delegate at the Zionist congress in Leningrad.
1/14/2013 3:27 AM Here is full translation:
Among the people who were of outstanding assistance to residents and different institutions, one should mention Baruch Shumacher - leader of the community, originally from Zowhill(or something like that), Shachne Grinfeld who was delegate to Zionist convention in Leningrad, town Rabbi Shmuel Margulian and Rabbi Shmuel Blubshtein. These people didn't spare any time or energy and founded institutions and organisations for mutual help like "Financial aid and savings", "Trade bank", "Charity","Bikur Holim"(help for the sick), modern Hebrew school etc. Baranovka was also distinguished in national (Jewish) activity and was kind of activity center for Zionist movement for other towns in the area.
