Bobbie's Place

  • Over 2500 Children Receive:
  • Brand New Clothing Twice a Year
  • Brand New Winter Coats

Bobbie’s Place of Rockland has provided Yom Tov clothing for Rockland County children ages three to eighteen discreetly and free of charge for over 15 years. We service over 2,500 children from over 500 Rockland County families, whose parents do not have the means to provide them with new clothing. Bobbie’s Place is run by a dedicated staff of volunteers, and our “store” location in Forshay is provided rent-free, so virtually 100% of donations goes toward the purchase of clothing. We purchase brand-new clothing from wholesale suppliers that provide us with hefty discounts so that twice every year we can provide each child with a Yom Tov outfit.

New clothing makes children feel special. Can you imagine the joy of children who have never

owned something that was not first worn by others? In fact, we regularly hear about children

who never experienced cutting off a tag from a garment or who had been embarrassed to go to

shul because they had nothing to wear.


Our annual clothing budget exceeds $250,000. The average annual cost for each sponsored family

now approaches $500. Please consider sponsoring a child for $100 per year or a family for $500,

which is but a fraction of what we spend on our own families for Yom Tov. In addition, every

other year (including this coming winter IY”H) we provide winter coats to about 1,200 children at

a cost of approximately $30,000. Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring these



Your support will ensure that we can continue providing Yom Tov clothing for a growing list of

needy families in our community. If you know somebody who qualifies, please ask the parents

to call us at 845-202-9202 and leave a message or email us at In the

merit of your generous support may your family experience only abundant brachah and Yiddishe



This project which started in Brooklyn, is run by the Krull and Steif families.
