MTA is partnering with Yad Leah to host a Clothing Drive to benefit needy families in Israel. Spearheaded by MTA Senior Gavriel Miller, with guidance from Chesed Coordinator Rabbi Baruch Schonbrun, the Clothing Drive will run through February 23. “At MTA, we empower our talmidim to take on leadership roles within our yeshivah and instill the values of giving back to the Jewish community and helping others in need,” said Rabbi Schonbrun. “This student-run Clothing Drive is a great way for our talmidim to contribute to the Jewish community in Israel and help provide school clothing for needy families.” Donations can be dropped off at MTA, Room 432, 2540 Amsterdam Avenue, New York City. All donations should be in like-new condition. Yad Leah is a volunteer-based organization whose staff and supporters share a collective dream of alleviating poverty in Israel. The organization does this by collecting new and gently used clothing in the United States and sending that clothing to communities throughout Israel to be distributed to needy families.
