RYE, N.Y. -- Rye YMCA members teamed with The Sharing Shelf to support families throughout Westchester County during a recent children’s clothing drive for The Sharing Shelf in Port Chester.
Organized by the Y’s Togetherhood Committee, the project gave members the opportunity to donate seasonal clothing for babies, children and teens and to volunteer during a day of service at The Sharing Shelf’s warehouse.
“Like the Rye Y, the Sharing Shelf makes a real difference in the lives of families and children,” remarked Kat Doyle, chairperson of the Togetherhood Committee. “This project brought families together in service, raised awareness about The Sharing Shelf’s important work and demonstrated our Y’s commitment to the communities we serve.”
Y members repeatedly filled two large boxes in the Y’s lobby with fall and winter clothing. By the end of the drive, the Y had collected everything from baby’s shoes to winter jackets, from boys jeans to girls dresses, filling three large SUVs with the donations.
“We’re grateful to all of the Y members who donated clothing, promoted the drive and gave their time and energy to help others. They embodied the true spirit of Togetherhood," said Togetherhood Committee member Patty Mosher.
