Click Industries, a major PPE supplier, offered OneFamily scores of cases of individually wrapped 3-ply disposable face masks, bottles of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and forehead thermometers.
When asked why Click Industries decided to make this grand philanthropic gesture, the company said, “The true meaning of tzedakah is justice, tzedek. When God puts us in a position to be able to help others, it is not just a nice thing to do, but our duty and responsibility. As the world struggles to deal with COVID-19, we are doing the best we can to share the supplies that we have with those who need it most.”
In the spirit of OneFamily’s work on the ground every day in Israel, the organization is partnering with Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey to distribute the PPE to individuals suffering from trauma and personal loss, and to those who are in need of financial assistance, mirroring the focus of OneFamily in Israel.
This gift from Click Industries will help families continue to stay healthy, go to school and work, and receive the counseling services that are so close to the hearts of those at OneFamily. OneFamily was so appreciative of the donation, and honored to be able to help those in need in the US and Israel.
