The Bushwick Food Coop is holding a back-to-school clothing and school supply drive to benefit Flushing Family Services, a shelter for homeless families just a few blocks from The Coop. Let’s help these kids (ages 4-18, don’t forget the older kids!) get ready for school by buying them new clothes, backpacks, notebooks, pens/pencils, and crayons. Please bring donations directly to the coop before Wednesday, September 3rd and we will transport them to the shelter.
Families are also very much in need of new and gently used adult clothing, bed sheets, blankets, towels, toiletries, and household items such as dishes and small appliances. Please feel to drop those off at The Coop as well!
