Winter-appropriate clothing is a basic necessity, yet for many children in Westchester, it is a luxury their families struggle to provide.

In partnership with the Sharing Shelf, the City of New Rochelle will help provide these clothing essentials to teens in need the week of January 20. For more information on this and other volunteer opportunities visit the Volunteer New York! website.
