Communities In Need
COMMUNITIES IN NEED
Rooted in our mission is the understanding of our Jewish identity, the appreciation of human diversity, and a commitment to tikkun olam, repairing the world. Below is a list of resources to help communities in need.
MASK A HERO NY
The medical supply shortage is real in New York – doctors, nurses, hospital workers and those in ICU’s, ER, offices, and first responders need supplies. Your healthcare providers are putting themselves and their families on the line. Mask A Hero NY is facilitating donations of medical supplies to local hospitals to help those on the front lines of COVID-19.
If you have access to sealed/boxed/new medical grade N95 Respirator masks or other useful equipment: face shields, hoods, surgical gowns and gloves, please donate them to Mask A Hero NY – donations can be facilitated at maskaherony.com.
