Tanger Hillel Volunteers For Local Ukraine Relief Effort

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–On Sunday, Mar. 6, a team of 24 volunteers from Brooklyn and Queens College gathered together to sort 3,750 pounds of medical supplies for Ukrainians on the ground in Ukraine and Poland. The volunteers worked alongside the United Jewish Appeal and Afya Foundation, who organized the relief effort. 

The Afya Foundation has been around for 20 years and has aided in disasters from the earthquake in Haiti to the COVID-19 pandemic here in the United States and abroad. With the help of local volunteers, Afya takes sterile medical supplies that hospitals can no longer sort through and ships them locally and around the world where they can be of the most use.
