Yad Leah Holds First-Ever Pick-Up Drive in Passaic-Clifton

(Courtesy of Yad Leah) Yad Leah recently held its first-ever clothing drive pick-up in the Passaic-Clifton community. The event saw an overwhelming response from the local residents, with 310 households generously donating over 1500 bags of clothing.

On Sunday, July 23, Yad Leah dispatched a specially marked truck throughout the Passaic-Clifton neighborhoods to collect bags of clothing generously donated by community members. Residents eagerly participated in the drive by placing bags filled with gently used clothing on their doorsteps, ready for pickup.

“We are truly humbled by the outpouring of support from the Passaic-Clifton community,” said Jessica Katz, director of Yad Leah. “The response to our first clothing pick-up drive in this community has been remarkable. Each bag of clothing represents a tangible contribution towards alleviating the hardships faced by struggling families in Israel.”

Yad Leah’s mission focuses on empowering needy families in Israel by providing them with essential clothing items, thereby relieving them of the financial burden of purchasing new garments. The donated clothing will be shipped to Israel, where it will be distributed to those in need through Yad Leah’s 23 thrift-shop sites across the country.

As an expression of gratitude, Yad Leah left a special gift at each household’s doorstep following the successful pick-up. The heartfelt tokens of appreciation served as a reminder of how every individual’s contribution can make a significant impact on the lives of those less fortunate.

“We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in this clothing drive,” added Katz. “Your generosity has exemplified the true spirit of community and compassion, bringing hope and support to families facing challenging circumstances in Israel.”
