MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Community members from around Eastchester, Bronxville and Scarsdale traveled to Mount Vernon to help disadvantaged teenage girls at a shopping event.

The Sharing Shelf, a program of Family Services of Westchester, partnered with the Junior League of Central Westchester (JLCW) and other local volunteer organizations to present “Girl-Topia,” a special one-day shopping boutique.

More than 100 girls who come from families living in financial distress made their way to the VFW Hall in Mount Vernon to browse through thousands of donated summer outfits and accessories.

Volunteers from Sephora also participated in the event, providing free makeovers for the teenagers in attendance. Each attendee was given a certificate entitling her to choose more than a week’s worth of outfits, plus a choice of jewelry.

Mei Morin, the JLCW chair of the Done-In-A-Day Committee, said that it’s rewarding for the volunteers to give back to their neighbors in need.

“The JLCW has been a proud partner with Family Services of Westchester for many years. Girl-Topia, in particular, is an ideal fit with our mission to provide community services to women and families,” she said. “It is so rewarding to help girls in need and to have my daughter experience that same sense of giving and caring.”
