Teen Boutique

Please see our COVID-19 Update by clicking here

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, The Sharing Shelf‘s spring 2020 Teen Boutique has been cancelled. Our committee is hard at work to find alternative ways to provide clothing to the many girls who benefit from this special day.  In the interim, The Sharing Shelf is working with local nonprofits to provide hygiene kits and sanitary products to low-income women and girls. To help with this initiative, please click here.

The Sharing Shelf of FSW, Westchester’s clothing bank for children, hosts its Teen Boutique twice a year. The event is a free, one-day shopping boutique for girls ages 13-19, from families in financial need.

Teen girls are invited to Teen Boutique by social service agencies, schools, food pantries and community groups. Each girl is invited to choose and take home a week’s worth of clothing from thousands of donated clothing items, as well as shoes and accessories. Everything we offer is screened before the event for quality and we offer only items that are new or gently worn and age appropriate. Since our first event in November 2012, we’ve hosted 11 events serving over 1,500 teen girls from throughout Westchester and distributing nearly 40,000 items.

The Sharing Shelf organizes Teen Boutique twice a year – November and April – in conjunction with volunteers and community groups.
