Help us put together 200 welcome backpacks with necessary toiletries and meaningful supplies for newly arrived asylum seekers in NYC. Leading up to Hanukkah, here’s how you can contribute:
- Purchase items from our wishlist to be delivered directly to BJ
- Donate a new or gently used backpack at BJ between Thursday, December 1, and Friday, December 16. Backpacks can be dropped off weekdays from 8:00 AM-7:00 PM.
- Bring a $20 bill or $22 metrocard (which will be added to a backpack) to our Hanukkah celebrations on Sunday, December 18: Community Hanukkah Candle Lighting | Oh Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah: A K-2 Party | BJ Teens Hanukkah Party
