Thank You Green Eileen!
Here at Family-to-Family we’re packing up MORE beautiful clothing donated to us by the Eileen Fisher Recycling program through Green Eileen, the branch of Eileen Fisher dedicated to recycling Eileen Fisher clothes. So far we’ve passed along the donated clothes to women in need in our Montrose, Arkansas recipient community, to Henry Street Settlement House in NYC and to Integrity House in Newark, N.J. Green Eileen has donated a total of 3,385 items of women’s clothing to Family-to-Family since mid-March.
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.
National Foundation to End Senior Hunger Sponsoring F-to-F Families
We’re proud to announce that The National Foundation to End Senior Hunger has joined the Family-to-Family community as donors to our Sponsor A Family program. 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.
