Refresh Your Wardrobes at Our “Closet for Good!”

A Fabulous Fundraiser for F-to-F and great way to replenish your wardrobe!

For two weeks starting November 29th, Family-to-Family’s Hastings-on-Hudson, NY office will be transformed into a pop-up women’s and teen’s clothing shop! The clothing for sale came from donations by women and teens in the Rivertowns community who have been dropping off their clean, lightly worn items over the last few weeks.

Shoppers are invited to fill a bag with stylish, gently used clothing and accessories for $35 a bag if they “swapped” (brought in clothes), and $50 if they didn’t. All proceeds will benefit Family-to-Family. Email us at for more information.

More Kids Join One Book At A Time

With over 150 children from 16 communities across the U.S. enrolled in One Book At A Time, we’re thrilled to be adding even more children from a new site – The Museum School in Yonkers, N.Y.  Five new OBAAT elementary school kids will receive their first book from their assigned book “buddy” this fall.  OBAAT’s mission is to provide a personal connection between a donor family with enough to share and a book-loving child in need. OBAAT donors buy and send one new book every month to the child they are matched with along with a letter, providing “their” child with that wonderful feeling of book ownership.  Seventy-nine percent of students at The Museum School qualify for free or reduced lunch through the National Free Lunch Program.  With household budgets stretched to provide food and basic necessities, buying books is usually out of the question.
