A Message of Support for Ukraine

As an organization that serves individuals and families from different countries and ethnic backgrounds–many with personal experiences of fleeing genocide and war–JFS urges you to support each other and pray for peace during this troubling time. Threats to a country’s sovereignty and attacks on its people have lasting humanitarian consequences that require global support. We’ve seen the impact that violent conflicts have on families and children, including long-term support needed.
Presently, JFS Middlesex is mobilizing to collect unopened medical supplies and hygiene items to drop-off to the Ukrainian Orthodox Holy Ascension Cathedral, which is airlifting supplies to Ukraine-Poland borders. Priority items requested:
  • Tourniquets
  • Gauze, bandages, bandaids, wraps, etc.
  • Sterile alcohol prep pads (no alcohol bottles)
  • Eye drops
  • Medications to relieve skin irritation and to heal burns and wounds
  • First aid kits
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers (e.g., Ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen, etc.)
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Diapers and wipes for children
  • Sterile gloves
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste (all ages)
  • Socks, non-bulky
  • Underwear (all ages)


Please drop-off requested items at our North Brunswick or Monroe offices between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. JFS Staff will deliver donated items by Wednesday, March 9, 2022. Any questions, email [email protected].
