The annual Children’s Clothing Drive at Keter Torah needs gently used children’s clothing, coats, shoes, and volunteers to help. For those in need of the free items, shopping can be arranged by appointment and done anonymously.
Drop off is in the Keter Torah ballroom, 600 Roemer Ave, in Teaneck, on Sunday, July 24, from 9 to 11 a.m. and all day Monday, July 25. Enter through the shul’s main doors. Do not leave items outdoors. It would be helpful if items that are donated could be sorted and labeled by size and gender before they are dropped off. Donors can sort and fold clothing directly onto the tables at drop off.
Items needed include clothing, shoes, boots, coats, snow pants, and baby blankets and buntings, all for infants through 14-year-olds. Do not donate ripped, stained, or torn clothing; no personal logos or bat/bar mitzvah, camp, or school shirts; no tzitzit; socks, or headbands.
There will be a rummage sale on August 3, which will be open to everyone; the clothing left after the sale will be sent to Israel. The money raised will go directly to Yad Leah, which will help defray the cost of shipping the clothing. For information, email ChildrensClothingDrive @gmail.com.
