What We Do
The Sharing Shelf is Westchester's Clothing Bank for Children. We collect new and gently used clothing for infants, children and teens. The clothing is sorted by quality, size, season and gender then distributed at no cost to economically vulnerable children through more than 50 nonprofits, schools, hospitals and community groups in Westchester County. The children receive a week's worth of seasonally appropriate clothing matched to their sizing needs. Each year, we distribute over 60,000 items including clothing, coats, shoes, new socks and new underwear.
We also host a semi-annual free shopping day for low-income teen girls and each summer distribute new backpacks filled with grade appropriate school supplies.
