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 directly to us at 


SewGreen@Rochester, Inc.

or you may send your donation via PayPal by clicking on the Donate Button.

We are Accepting Donations of Fabric and Yarn etc. during the same times as our curb-side pick-ups for online orders

(NEW TIME) Wednesday 3pm - 5pm

Saturday 11am - 2pm 


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.

If you have any questions call us at 585-328-2642 or

send an email to the following address:
