Organization
 Donations Requested / Volunteer Opportunities
  

• We are seeking children’s Kindle Fires for use in the classrooms of our special needs pe-school in Westchester. These come pre-loaded with educational apps. They are an incredible resource for our young learners, many of whom are from families where English is not spoken in the home. Those interested can contact Megan Lombardo at mlombardo@acds.org.

• We are seeking to develop a Young Professional’s Board for our agency – a special needs pre-school in Scarsdale. The time commitment would be very manageable – we estimate quarterly meetings/events. It is a wonderful resume builder and networking opportunity for young professionals who can share their talent while helping our community – low income families of children age 3-5 with developmental disabilities. Those interested can contact Megan Lombardo at mlombardo@acds.org.

Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle• 2 Air Hockey tables

• Board members, especially those interested in fund development

• The Council Board of Directors is always interested in adding members who are passionate about providing transformative experiences to our youngest children throughout the County. Safe, reliable, quality early care and education not only changes the trajectory of children’s lives, it increases workforce participation and productivity, reduces costly public expenditures, and builds a more skilled workforce for tomorrow.

Family Services of Westchester

• The Sharing Shelf relies on volunteers to accomplish its work. We seek volunteers to help us sort clothing and pack orders for children in our warehouse weekdays on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9:30am - 2:30pm. Anyone interested should email thesharingshelf@fsw.org to set up training.

• Volunteers are also needed to organize clothing drives in the community, among friends, at work, in a neighborhood and in their house of worship.

• The Sharing Shelf is in great need of 1-2 MacBook Pro laptop computers and an iPad. We would happily accept a refurbished of either or both that is 2-3 years old. Our current computer runs on an operating system that is not compatible with our new printer.

• The Sharing Shelf seeks donations of new socks and new underwear. We aim to collect 2,000 pairs of new socks and 2,000 pairs of new underwear each month. These items are basic necessities but are often a luxury which many families struggle to provide. Socks from infant to adult sizes. Underwear in all sizes from 3T to Adult (teen) XL.

Note: We welcome all donations, but if you are part of a group (business, school, troop, book club, family) that would like to take part in our "Sock and Underwear Challenge" by donating a large quantity and adopting a few weeks or a month, please contact Kathy Ellis, Assistant Program Director, at kellis@fsw.org.

• The Sharing Shelf also welcomes donations of new winter hats and new winter gloves.

• On an ongoing basis, The Sharing Shelf collects new and gently used clothing for infants, children and teens. We have an acute need for boys' clothing from size 4T through teen/adult small, particularly boys sizes 5, 12, 14, and adult/teen small.

Lexington Center for Recovery• Board of Directors Members – Lexington would welcome 2 to 3 additions to our Board of Directors. For further information, please contact us directly (Headquarters – Katonah location).

Westchester Medical Center SAAVE Program

For our Sexual Assault, Abuse and Victims Assistance (SAAVE) Program:

• New Unisex Footwear (Slides): sizes S, M, L, XL: Victims of sexual assault often need to give up their clothes and shoes as part of evidence collection. WMC provides clothing to victims, but we are in need of unisex footwear/slides to provide to the victims when shoes are collected as evidence. Slides please, no flip-flop sandals.

New Sports bras: Victims of sexual assault often need to give up clothing as part of evidence collection. We are in need of sports bras to help replace this clothing for victims of sexual assault.

• Cellphone chargers: Cellphone chargers are invaluable to the needs of a victim of domestic violence where he/she/they may not easily or promptly return home after an assault to collect their belongings.

• New Coloring Books and small packs of Crayons: Coloring books and crayons provide much needed distraction for our child victims throughout the forensic exam process.
