Volunteer Internship – The Sharing Shelf of FSW – Assistant for Outreach and Operations

final-sharingshelf-largeThe Sharing Shelf of Family Services of Westchester is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide clothing to children from families in financial need.  The Sharing Shelf collects new and gently used clothing donations for infants, youth and teens. That clothing is sorted by size, season and gender then distributed through social service agencies, schools, hospitals and non-profits to children in need. Each child receives a week’s worth of seasonally appropriate clothing matched into outfits according to that child’s sizing needs at no cost. The Sharing Shelf also collects and distributes other basic necessities such as new school supplies, shoes, strollers, car seats and pack-n-plays.  Donations come from individuals and community clothing drives, as well as from retailers and corporations.  Each year, The Sharing Shelf provides more than 2,000 children with clothing and equipment distributed through over fifty agencies, schools, hospitals and programs in Westchester County. The Sharing Shelf was founded by a volunteer and relies on volunteers to achieve its mission.

We also seek one intern with computer skills and experience working with Google docs and Google forms.
