Tennis Party- Please Join Us!
3rd annual Tennis Party
Saturday, March 23rd

Our 3rd Annual Tennis Party will take place at Lifetime Athletic located at 1 Westchester Park Drive, Harrison on Saturday, March 23rd.

We need your donations of silent auction items. To donate items, please email us at thesharingshelf@fsw.org.

We are now actively collecting your gently used bridge and designer clothing. We are looking for brands from AG, Theory, Vince and Joie through Alice + Olivia, DVF, Ermenegildo Zegna, Prada and Jimmy Choo.

We are partnering with a local consigner who will donate proceeds back to The Sharing Shelf and help us continue our work clothing local children in need. Items that we cannot consign will be donated to local nonprofits to clothe low income men and women. Please make sure your donations are in clean, wearable condition with no rips, stains or tears.

Please bring in your donations separately bagged and labeled
 "Consign'd for a Cause."
Join our squad of friendly, warm-hearted and giving volunteers!
Each month, we provide clothing to over 200 children and teens. Winter is here, with cold weather and many children in need of warm sweaters, pants and coats. We need your helping hands!

After- School Hours
Wednesdays and Thursdays
We now have after-school hours on a regular basis each month. We will be open until 5pm on most Wednesday and Thursday afternoons (and some Tuesdays). This is an excellent opportunity for high school students who need community service hours to help out.

We are located on the left side of Purdy Avenue, just past Townsend. Look for a blue sign and turn left into our driveway. Our entrance is at the far right end of the building, behind Cascade Pool.
Do not use Waze or Google Maps once on Purdy.

Your donation allows us to continue our work!
