Community Unity: Making a Real Difference Through Our Clothing & Sorting Drive

At the core of our mission lies a simple yet profound objective: to enrich the lives of others and cultivate a sense of community. This month, we are thrilled to share the heartwarming success of our recent clothing and sorting drive, an initiative that truly showcased the power of community unity. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who participated, with special shout-outs to the Bronx School of Law & Finance, Council Member Eric Dinowitz, and the incredible members of our community who came together to make a real difference.

Clothing, Hygiene Items & Backpacks Donations

Our call for support yielded an overwhelming response. Thank you!

From gently used clothing for all age groups to warm coats, cozy hats, and essential winter items, our community stepped up to provide the basics that newly arrived individuals and families desperately needed. The generosity of everyone who donated cannot be overstated, and we are deeply grateful for your contributions. Special recognition goes to Council Member Eric Dinowitz for participating and inspiring others to give back to their community. 


On October 9th, we witnessed an incredible outpouring of support as community members joined us for the sorting event at the Riverdale Y.

Not only did this event make a positive impact on those less fortunate, but it also exemplified how meaningful community service can be. A special thank you goes out to the Bronx School of Law & Finance, whose students and staff went above and beyond in sorting these essential items. Your dedication and enthusiasm were truly appreciated.

Volunteers with Vehicles

Our final step in this journey was delivering the freshly cleaned and sorted items to those in need on October 22nd. To respect the recipients’ dignity and privacy, we are keeping the specifics confidential, but we want to acknowledge and express our gratitude to the volunteers who made this crucial step possible.

The success of this clothing and sorting drive is a testament to the strength of our community when we come together with a shared purpose.

We extend our heartfelt thanks once again to the Bronx School of Law & Finance, Council Member Eric Dinowitz, and every member of our community who participated, donated, and volunteered. Your compassion and generosity have made a real difference in the lives of others, and we look forward to continuing to build a stronger, more caring community together.
