Needed items include: 

  • Coats (new or gently used) 
  • Diapers 
  • Baby wipes 
  • Face masks


Senator Mayer said: “I’m extremely proud of my Youth Advisory Council for their dedication to our neighbors, especially during these cold winter months. They were very successful with this event last year, collecting over 250 coats for those in need. We look forward to this year’s drive and thank our donors in advance for their generosity.”

The Sharing Shelf Executive Director Deborah Blatt said: We are grateful to the Youth Advisory Council and Senator Mayer for their partnership and for highlighting clothing insecurity and diaper poverty. This drive will have a direct and immediate impact on local families."
