Providing Dignity and Self-Respect Every Day
Buying new clothing is often an unimaginable luxury for those who are struggling. A new dress for the holidays, a layette for a newborn baby, a trousseau for a bride-to-be – these are just a few items we are proudly able to provide for community members in need. We also have resources for those who want to share or give away their clothing to a greater cause.
Sara & Morris Setton and Family Sara Ann’s Closet
(Formally known as Dress-a-Child) One of SBH’s most critical programs, Sara Ann’s Closet supplies the children of our clients with an array of brand new clothing to wear. With a true storefront on McDonald Avenue, clients can “shop” with dignity for every season and occasion. In addition, we distribute winter coats and uniforms to community members on an individual, as-needed basis.
Karen Mizrahi a”h Bridal Boutique
This beautiful space is dedicated to helping brides enjoy a more stress-free and affordable wedding experience. Brides and their mothers can borrow the perfect gown for their special day, with extra attention given to those in need.
Layettes of Love
A mothers-for-mothers concept, Layettes of Love is a gemach (lending society) which collects unused baby clothing and gifts. Parents who have items that are the wrong size, season or style make donations to those who can use them and enjoy them.
For years, Dress-a-Bride has helped brides feel special – both on their big day and beyond. With funding from the annual Chinese auction, Dress-a-Bride outfits almost 40 brides a year with brand new trousseaus.
Anonymous volunteers gather their own private donations of goods for clients who are new parents. They provide clothing, furniture and accessories to benefit the newborns and their families.
Something Borrowed is a bridal rental concept that brings new meaning to the term “wearing and sharing.” Community women donate gently used gowns in three categories – bride, mother of the bride and marcher, giving others the opportunity to rent these barely worn pieces with a tax-deductible donation.
With four locations and growing, SBH donation bins accept all forms of used clothing and shoes.
Current locations: SBH Offices at 425 Kings Highway in Brooklyn and 200 Norwood Avenue in Deal, as well as two Manhattan locations – the Edmond J Safra Synagogue on 11 East 63rd Street and Congregation Magen David of Manhattan at 177 Sullivan Street.
Dress For Success Program
“ My kids want to thank you for the clothes for summer and holiday. It helped them not to look different than others. If we keep on saying thank you it’s still not enough. ”
“ My daughter came to you before her wedding. You treated us with such respect and care and outfitted her with beautiful clothes. She felt like a queen! ”
“ I really enjoyed the Junee Jr card because I like their clothes and I don’t have to wear somebody’s old clothes. Thank you for everything you have done for me!!
