The Junior League of Westchester on the Sound relies on the Golden Shoestring to help fund its community programs, including literacy outreach and workshops for Spanish-speaking immigrants. In addition to donating items outright, it might also be possible to consign some high-quality items. Almost anything can be donated, including artwork, bedding, bric-a-brac, china, crystal, glassware, kitchen items, working appliances, clothing, housewares, toys, small furniture pieces, decorative items, accessories, and bedding. Items should be clean, in current fashion (your duds from 10 years ago just won't fly), and in good condition. It's best to leave the records, space heaters, vaporizers, items made from endangered species, computers older than three years, bathing suits, socks, underwear and books (other than children's and current bestsellers) at home.
