our clothing boutique

“In the Clothing Boutique we have been able to get clothing for all occasions, for work and daily life, and for our children, too.”
— D.R.

Families struggling to make ends meet face difficult choices: putting food on the table, paying for a roof over their heads, costs to get to work, and costs of health care for their families.  For some, this means they and their children lack the clothes they need to weather the seasons, and to clothe their families to live with dignity in our community.  

The Community Center of Northern Westchester helps to relieve the burden of clothing purchases for these families, by offering them gently used clothing, free of charge, donated by the community.   

Your donations help provide:

  • Work clothing needed for interviews and jobs
  • Everyday school clothing for children
  • Athletic attire and sneakers so kids can participate in sports with their schoolmates
  • Promwear so high schoolers can realize their dream of attending their school prom 

We welcome donations of clean, gently used, seasonal clothing, shoes, and accessories. We accept fall and winter clothing from September through March, and spring and summer clothing from April through August.  We also appreciate donations of gently used linens.

As in our food market, families in need can choose the clothing they need for their families in our clothing bank – free of charge.  In this way, they can “shop” with dignity: that’s why we call it our “Clothing Boutique.”
