Bushwick Emergency Relief Fund
The Bushwick Emergency Relief Fund (BERF) was started by teachers and staff at a local Bushwick school to help families facing food insecurity and economic instability during the pandemic. What started as a fund to help the school’s families is now beginning to serve the broader Bushwick community through bi-monthly Community Care Events that feature food pantries, Voter and Census Registration/Information, clothing drives, and offering other community needs. Please help us continue to grow and serve the beautiful, vibrant Bushwick community through donation, helping out at a Community Care Event, or hosting a class for donation! Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns.
