We’d love an extra pair of hands (and socks!) at our donation drives.



September 18 - November 8

MetroCards are a major expense for refugees, asylum seekers and asylees as they try to get around the city for appointments. 

Drop off at CBE (274 Garfield Pl.) in box at the security desk

Please indicate the amount on the card (in an envelope with the amount written on the outside or attach a note securely with a paperclip). Any amount accepted, but cards with enough money to cover 10 rides are the most sought after. If you have a commuter benefit card (like TransitChek or WageWorks) with extra money on it, this is a good way to use it up!

Or, donate online! We’ll purchase and deliver cards to HIAS and RDJ.

Thank You Beth Elohim (1).jpg


Food and Toiletries for RIF Asylum Support

The Refugee Task Force will be providing food and toiletries to 20 asylum seekers who attend monthly RIF Asylum Support meetings. CBE is providing funds for the food, and we will hold donation drives for the toiletries. We need drivers, shoppers and baggers.

Check our calendar for this month’s dates! (Scroll down on the homepage.)
