Curb Your Mitzvah


During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have ways you can help our neighbors in need!

Help us stock the shelves of our Community Needs Bank to help our neighbors in need with curbside, contact-less drop off.

At December’s Curb Your Mitzvah event, we are also accepting donations for our Holiday Wishes – Wrapped With Love Gift Drive. For more information on the gift drive and to sign up, click here.

Food we are collecting:

  • Canned protein – chicken, salmon, sardines, and tuna
  • Cereal
  • Ensure
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce – no glass jars
  • Rice – individual size bags
  • Soup

At Sid Jacobson JCC’s Annex
200 Forest Drive, Suite 11
Sunday, December 13, 10am-12pm

To make a donation of food, supplies, cards, or masks, a drop off time needs to be coordinated first. To schedule a drop off time, contact Susan Berman, 516.484.1545 ext. 202, sberman@sjjcc.org.

Shop in your pantry for our most needed items to help us stock the shelves of our Community Needs Bank to donate food to our neighbors in need:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Canned Tuna, Chicken, Sardines, and Salmon
  • Cereal
  • Shelf-stable Milk
  • Ensure
  • Toilet Paper
  • Diapers and Pull-Ups

Create a postcard or card with a personal message that can be sent with a packaged meal to our neighbors in need.

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
