Nearly 200 volunteers of all ages loaded up backpacks for 2000 East End kids in need at UJA-Federation of New York’s Supplies for Success backpack assembly event at The Ross Lower School Field House in Bridgehampton on August 29. Chairs Mindy Richenstein of Sagaponack and Jill Bodian of East Hampton filled backpacks with Rabbi Joshua Franklin of JCOH of East Hampton.
L&W Market in Bridgehampton is holding a coat drive. Through December 31, L&W Market will be collecting lightly used or new coats, which will be donated to those in need on the East End through the local organization Maureen’s Haven. As a thank you for donating, L&W will offer a free cup of coffee to those donating coats.
