Give Now: Necessities for Victims of Turkey/Syria Earthquake

By February 16, 2023February 20th, 2023No Comments

We are partnering with our neighbor, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, to collect much needed items for the survivors of the earthquake that recently struck Turkey and Syria recently. Items can be brought to our lobby through Wednesday, February 22 at 12:00pm. A second collection may be organized, in which case we will update this post with a new second deadline.

Items can be gently used or new:

  • Hand warmers
  • Fleece blankets
  • Sleeping bags
  • Camping mats
  • Tents (172 square feet or larger, ready for use, fire and cold weather resistant)
  • Flashlights
  • Power banks
  • Baby formula (ready to drink)

Monetary Donations

Here are a few organizations suggested by members of the ECFS community that have stellar ratings by Charity Navigator and GuideStar:

  1. Turkish Philanthropy Funds 
  2. Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) 
  3. Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP)
