For the sixth year in a row the Scarsdale Police Benevolent Association, in conjunction with the Scarsdale Police Department, is sponsoring a drive for My Sister’s Place, a non-profit agency in Westchester County that advocates and provides shelter for victims of domestic violence. We are asking that parents encourage their children to forgo the purchase of the many items such as eggs, shaving cream, “silly string”, books of matches, cigarette lighters, toothpaste, hair spray and toilet paper, that are so often used to cause mischief on Halloween and instead put the money towards any of the following items that My Sister’s Place will gratefully accept: new or slightly used large and extra large duffel bags, all size towels, new twin sheet sets, blankets and comforters (in bright, cheerful colors) for the upcoming cold weather, new and unopened full size toiletries, packages of diapers in all sizes, baby wipes and new or gently used infant clothing.
Donated goods can be dropped off in the lobby of the Scarsdale Police Department at Post and Fenimore Rds. any time of day or night from October 16, 2012 through November 4, 20120. The PBA will assure that the items are delivered to the shelter and will also make their own contribution to the cause. Clients of the shelter have been extremely grateful for support from the Scarsdale Community in the past and we are looking forward to another successful drive this year.
