Students from Yeshiva of Flatbush volunteer to collect Passover supplies for low-income families
FLATBUSH - Students from the Yeshiva of Flatbush are helping to make sure low-income Brooklyn families get to enjoy Passover.
More than 50 students took a break from class to help put together boxes of Passover supplies for low-income families.
Each box includes grape juice, apple sauce, gefilte fish and all the other makings of a Passover meal. The boxes will go to about 1,200 families, but combined with similar programs throughout the city, more than 50,000 families will receive ingredients for Passover meals.
Students at the school spent about eight hours assembling and stocking the boxes.
