Sunday June 23- Monday June 24 Children’s Clothing Drive Many people in our community struggle to make ends meet, and shopping for their children is often a hardship. By collecting gently used and new clothing within the community and inviting people to schedule private “shopping hours”, this drive helps many families dress their kids. Last year we were able to help over 100 families from within and beyond our community, and the remaining clothing was sent to Israel through Yad Leah. Many people came to shop for other families as well. We are looking for both clothing and volunteers! This year’s clothing drive will take place at RYNJ, 666 Kinderkamack Rd, River Edge. Clothing drop off dates are Sunday, June 23 from 9:00am to 12:00pm & Monday, June 24 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. For volunteer times and other inquiries please contact Dalia Stelzer and Chana Shields at ChildrensClothingDrive@gmail.com.
