Event Details

Start the New Year off by helping your Westchester County neighbors! We’ll be joining forces with our friends at The Sharing Shelf once again! As part of Cornell Cares Day 2020, we will partner with The Sharing Shelf, a Family Services of Westchester program, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00pm p.m. on Saturday, January 11, 2020. 

WHAT WE WILL DO: We will help sort and organize donations of new and gently used clothing, shoes and coats to benefit The Sharing Shelf’s clients. Please bring a donation of your child or teen’s gently used clothing (see donation guidelines) for the program. The Sharing Shelf also seeks donations of new socks, new underwear, new hats and new gloves, especially hats and gloves for young children.

THE SHARING SHELF: The Sharing Shelf collects new and gently used clothing for infants, children and teens (ages birth to 19). The clothing is sorted by quality, size, season and gender then distributed to children in need at no cost. Each child receives outfits coordinated to supply a week’s worth of clothing. 

THE NEED: Westchester County, NY, home to some of the wealthiest families in the nation, is also home to nearly 60,000 children living in low-income homes. The Sharing Shelf facilitates a connection between these communities.
