For the month of January, the Giving Lobby has many ways for you to help the community. Please take a moment before February 1 to be inspired by a visit to the wonderful drives the Bender JCC and Delivering Good have pledged our participation.

Formula & “Wipe Out” Drive

The Bender JCC will be a donation drop-off site for the Greater DC Diaper Bank. We are looking for unopened/unexpired formula. We would also love WIPES! Wipes are the most requested item and the DC Diaper Bank hopes to have a “Wipe Out Summer”. There are over 160 drop-off sites in this region, so if the JCC is out of your way, please go to whatever one is closest to you. Thank you all in advance for helping families get the nutrition they need!!! Please drop off donations in a large green bucket in the lobby. For Questions, contact Jennifer Radosh at

Collection runs through January
Drop Off Location: Front Lobby

Help a family in need this winter and donate a new set of pajamas! All donations will be sent to Comfort Cases. Their mission is to inspire communities to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care through Comfort, Community, Character, and Compassion. Comfort cases provide backpacks full of comforting items to babies, children, and teens entering foster care. Can’t make it to the JCC? Feel free to purchase items directly off their Wishlist at any time.
