We accept Material and Monetary Donations
First we'd like to thank you, for your generosity and willingness to support sustainability and self-sufficiency in our community!
Donations are tax-deductible—and every donation keeps these items out of landfills.
SewGreen@Rochester. Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
If you would like to make a monetary donation you may send your donation to us directly at SewGreen@Rochester, Inc. 438 West Main Street Rochester, NY 14608 or Click Here
Donated materials are used in our sewing, knitting, crochet and other classes, resold in our store to support learning programs for people of all ages, or used for charitable sewing projects. We love donations, but we can only accept items that can be reused. We also need to keep a check on our inventory as space is limited. For example, we currently have many cabinet sewing machines and cannot accept more cabinets at this time.
Please read the following information about bringing material donations to the shop.
