For our January Give, we partnered with Bushwick Ayuda Mutua (BAM) to help provide basic necessities and lasting resources for residents of the Bushwick neighborhood in New York City, which has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to serve the Bushwick community and donate baby and children's clothing to families in need.
BAM started during the 2020 COVID-19 crisis as a reaction to the "lack of government support and resources for the most vulnerable in [the] community." They aim to empower all members of the community to live autonomous lives in which they have access to basic necessities, livable wages, and safe and affordable housing.

Today, they serve the Bushwick community by distributing necessities like toilet paper, hygiene items, and menstrual products, as well as providing food and pantry items for residents. BAM also works to provide residents with access to information and resources regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are proud to donate our soft, organic cotton clothing to an organization that works so diligently to uplift its community and ensure that all people have their basic needs met. BAM is 100% volunteer run and community funded. To learn more, donate, or volunteer, click here to visit their website.
