The Spirit of Giving

Support our local community this winter with your contributions. Here’s how you can help:

Warmth for All: BJ Coat Drive

This December, we open doors to the spirit of giving with our winter coat drive. Contribute gently used or new winter coats and jackets to bring warmth to those in need. Children’s winter clothing of all types is also accepted.

Drop-off Details:

  • When: Friday, December 1, to Friday, December 15
  • Time: Weekdays from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM 
  • Where: BJ Community House, 270 West 89th Street

Your donations will directly impact the lives of our neighbors in need. The collected coats will be distributed to residents of two Upper West Side shelters and to students in the Riverside Language Program, offering solace during the coldest months.
