Click Industries, a personal protective equipment supplier, donated cases of individually wrapped three-ply disposable face masks, bottles of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and forehead thermometers to OneFamily. Because of covid restrictions, OneFamily could not distribute the PPE in Israel and sought a local charity whose mission overlapped with its work helping victims of terror.
OneFamily partnered with Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey to distribute the PPE to people suffering from trauma and loss as well as to people in need of financial assistance. JFCS serves thousands of people across northern New Jersey through counseling, older adults services, and food and basic needs assistance. JFCS already had provided masks and hand sanitizers to several of its Corner Market food pantry clients and to hundreds of Holocaust survivors.
