Donation Partners

Family Services of Westchester

The Sharing Shelf collects new and gently used clothing for infants, children and teens, in sizes newborn through XXL. Volunteers join in the Port Chester warehouse where clothing is sorted by quality, size, season and gender. Donations are distributed to local children in need at no cost through more than 50 Westchester non-profits, schools, food pantries and hospitals.

The children served receive a week's worth of seasonally appropriate clothing matched into outfits according to their sizing needs. The program was founded by volunteers and relies on volunteers to achieve its mission. For more information, email Program Director Deborah Blatt.

Eliminating Racism. Empowering Women.

The mission of the YWCA is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

 

Programs that support this mission are in three key areas:

Empowerment and Economic Advancement; Health and Wellness; and Racial Justice.

Empowerment and Economic Advancement activities include our Residence which provides a home for 193 women including those who are formerly incarcerated; our Children's Learning Center which supports early childhood programs to help children reach their developmental potential, before/afterschool programs, and summer programs all of which provide support to working parents, including scholarships to families with low to moderate income; and domestic violence programs which provide supervised visitation and drop-in childcare at the County Courthouse and New Rochelle Family Court, providing a safe space and nurturing care for

children, while their parents attend to matters before the court, and our ongoing career and financial empowerment workshops for women. The YWCA hosts an In the Company of Women luncheon for 500+ professional women to network and be inspired.

 

Health and Wellness activities include our fitness, gymnastics and aquatics programs for children and adults, including seniors; our Special Olympics training center for people with disabilities; and our breast cancer awareness program to provide education, awareness and screening to underserved women in Westchester County.

Racial Justice is accomplished through our Stand Against Racism, Courageous Conversations, Reading to End Racism and Girls Empowered Through Meaningful Support (GEMS) program which helps low income at risk girls (grades 1-12) to become engaged, fulfilled adults by addressing academic achievement gaps and career aspirations.

Bundles of Joy

Bundles of Joy NY is a 501(c)(3) that provides essentials to babies and toddlers in critical need right in our community. Through grass-roots community collection drives and individual donations, we are able to create custom bundles that deliver items that no child should have to go without. Our partnerships with various local hospitals, social service agencies and schools enable us to connect those who have with those who need.

Westchester Community Opportunity Program

The Eastchester Community Action Partnership (ECAP), a component of Westchester Community Opportunity Program (WestCOP), is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to mobilize and efficiently manage resources through partnerships and collaborations to help the low income and the at-risk population in the Hudson Valley region and thus achieve great self-sufficiency. ECAP serves all individuals in need but their target population resides in Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe. Some services include but are not limited to: food pantry, senior services, summer enrichment program, Christmas toy drive, emergency food pantry, after school program, thanksgiving food drive and enrichment programs.
