Thanks to the Scarsdale Police Department for the following item. Have news to share? Upload it here.
For the sixth year in a row, the Scarsdale Police Benevolent Association, in conjunction with the Scarsdale Police Department, is sponsoring a drive for My Sister’s Place.
The charity drive will help provide needed items to the nonprofit agency in Westchester County that advocates and provides shelter for victims of domestic violence.
The SPD and SPBA is asking that parents encourage their children to forgo the purchase of the many items such as eggs, shaving cream, “silly string”, books of matches, cigarette lighters, toothpaste, hair spray and toilet paper, that are so often used to cause mischief on Halloween and instead put the money towards donations.
The following is a list of items that My Sister’s Place will gratefully accept: new or slightly used large and extra large duffel bags, all size towels, new twin sheet sets, blankets and comforters (in bright, cheerful colors) for the upcoming cold weather, new and unopened, full-size toiletries, packages of diapers in all sizes, baby wipes and new or gently-used infant clothing.
Donated goods can be dropped off in the lobby of the Scarsdale Police Department at Post and Fenimore road any time of day or night from October 16 through November 4. The PBA will assure that the items are delivered to the shelter and will also make their own contribution to the cause.
Clients of the shelter have been extremely grateful for support from the Scarsdale Community in the past and we are looking forward to another successful drive this year.
