Thank You Green Eileen!
Here at Family-to-Family we’re packing up some BEAUTIFUL clothing donated to Family-to-Family by Green Eileen, the nonprofit dedicated to recycling gently used Eileen Fisher clothes. We’ve already packed up five boxes to ship to women in need in our Montrose, Arkansas recipient community. Green Eileen donated a total of 30 bags of clothing (40 items in a bag!) to Family-to-Family last week.
A special thanks to the folks at Dannon who just donated 50 brand new, unopened electric mixers to Family-to-Family. We passed them on to women struggling to get back on their feet who are living at the YWCA in White Plains, New York and at WIN (Women in Need) in New York City.

Using a grant they received from the Jack and Eleanor Borden Fund, the Foundation is now sponsoring two families from our Kew Gardens Hills, New York community with monthly groceries. The fund was established to help Jewish senior citizens who might otherwise go hungry. Read more.
184 “Bags of Beauty” Donated to Youth at Covenant House
An Evening of Giving!
To celebrate the one year anniversary of our “Share Your Beauty” giving initiative, Family-to-Family, Lara Eurdolian of PrettyConnected.com and LeSportsac teamed up for a “bags of beauty” giving party!
Beauty industry guests at the event filled to the brim donated LeSportsac cosmetic bags with perfumes, lotions, makeup and more for teens and young women in need living at New York City’s Covenant House youth shelter. The party, at LeSportsac’s Madison Avenue store in NYC, was our 5th Share Your Beauty event. Over the past year more than 32,000 beauty products have been donated and delivered to women and teens who are homeless or victims of domestic violence, providing them with what we hope is a little “sparkle and dignity.” Learn more.
