TaSH and Green Tree Textiles Give Back
TaSH Farmers Market and Partner Green Tree Textiles Give Back to Local Community: On January 25, the TaSH (Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow) Farmers Market donated 60 pairs of brand new children’s overalls to the Clothing Closet of Christ Church – San Marcos Episcopal Church in Tarrytown. The donation was made possible through TaSH nonprofit partner Green Tree Textiles, a Bronx-based organization that runs a booth at the market for community members to donate and recycle their unwanted clothes. In 2016, more than 3,000 pounds of clothing were recycled at the TaSH as a result of the partnership. Green Tree generously offered the overalls to the TaSH, enabling them to donate to the local cause of its choice. The Christ Church has a special program with the TaSH through its Community Food Pantry of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown program. Clients can use tokens that can be used exclusively at the market, redeemable for fresh goods every week throughout the season.
