A new clothing bank has opened its doors in Port Chester, offering a lifeline to low-income teens in need of essential clothing items.
The Teen Boutique provides a unique opportunity for teens referred by schools and nonprofit organizations to select their own clothing free of charge, all within a private and dignified setting.
It is situated on-site adjacent to the Sharing Shelf's clothing bank. According to the Sharing Shelf, the demand for clothing has surged by 300% in just three years, underscoring the urgent need for initiatives like the Teen Boutique.
By empowering teens to choose their own clothing in a welcoming environment, the Teen Boutique not only meets their immediate needs but also promotes self-esteem and confidence.
