The Sharing Shelf is located within an easy walk of the Port Chester Metro North Station, Bee-line Bus Stop and is convenient to I-95 and I-287.
The Sharing Shelf collects new and gently used clothing for infants, youth and teens. The clothing is sorted by size, season and gender then distributed through social service agencies, schools, hospitals and non-profits to children in need at no cost. Each child receives a week’s worth of seasonally appropriate clothing matched into outfits according to that child’s sizing needs. The Sharing Shelf also collects and distributes other basic necessities such as new school supplies, shoes, strollers, infant car seats and pack-n-plays. Donations come from individuals and community clothing drives, as well as from retailers and corporations. Each year, The Sharing Shelf provides more than 2,000 children with clothing and equipment distributed through over fifty agencies, schools, hospitals and programs in Westchester County. The Sharing Shelf was founded by a volunteer and relies on volunteers to achieve its mission.
