JCS Toy/School Supply Closet
JCS collects donations of new toys, games, crafts, school supplies and store gift cards which are used to help families from our community who are affected by financial hardship and are receiving help from JCS. Items are distributed on Chanukah and throughout the year on special occasions such as birthdays.
This year, our Toy Drive will run from November 13, 2017 through January 2, 2018. Your donation of new, unwrapped toys, books, crafts, or gift cards ($10 or less) will brighten the holiday for children whose families are facing hardship. You can even purchase a book from Barnes & Noble in Pikesville and donate it right at the store.
Donations may be dropped off during normal business hours at either JCS location:
Baltimore City: 5750 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore
Baltimore County: 3506 Gwynnbrook Avenue, Owings Mills
(Located at the Owings Mills JCC)
JCS also offers the option to anonymously “Sponsor a Family.” You will be assigned a family with children ranging in age from birth to 17 years old. Requests for specific ages and genders may be accommodated. To sponsor a family please contact Deborah Hamburger by November 20, 2017 at 410-843-7305 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Beth Hecht at 410-843-7456 / email@example.com
