They put out a call for everything from shampoo and diapers to batteries, garbage bags, baby food and clothes.

The NRBA’s message: No donation is too small.

After gathering donations this weekend, the kids involved boxed up the goods and delivered them to Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez’s office in Harlem.

“It was a great team effort and most importantly we took time out to help people in need,” said Sean Oliver of the NRBA.
