CURB YOUR MITZVAH
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have ways you can help our neighbors in need!
CURB YOUR MITZVAH FOOD + PROM DRESS DRIVE
Bring non-perishable food donations to SJJCC’s Community Needs Bank with our safe curbside drop-off. Much needed items include cereal, cooking oil, jelly, pancake mix, and peanut butter. We are also collecting gently worn dresses and gowns size 18+ and accessories (jewelry and purses, no shoes) to benefit The Long Island Volunteer Center. Dresses must be in bags.

All mask-making hands on deck! If you’re already a mask-maker or are looking for a way to contribute to the good of the community during the days of COVID-19, we need your help! Sewn or no-sew masks are being made for the most vulnerable SJJCC members. Help us impact the daily lives of those who need us the most!
Use your own fabric or you can arrange to pick up fabric from us and drop your completed masks off. You can use your own mask template, or any number of DIY tutorials found online. A few examples include The No-Sew T-Shirt Mask, Quilt in a Day’s surgical mask cover template, or Instructable Crafts DIY cloth face mask template. Fabric is provided to you courtesy of The Fortunoff Family, and brought to you through the support of The Bristal Assisted Living.
Looking for a fun project for all ages? Collect some rocks and decorate them with a kind message to be added to our Tikkun Olam Rock Garden, located right outside the entrance at SJJCC!
Drop-off anytime at 300 Forest Drive
