Scarsdale PBA Commits To Helping Victims Of Domestic Violence

SCARSDALE, N.Y. – With the realities of domestic violence at the forefront of national attention, the Scarsdale Police Benevolent Association is sponsoring a drive to benefit My Sister’s Place, a shelter for victims of domestic violence.

Each year, around Halloween, the Scarsdale Police Department collects items that single mothers may need to adequately provide for a family. The donations are then shipped to My Sister’s Place, a non-profit agency that advocates and provides shelter for victims of domestic violence in Westchester County.

This year, the association is collecting diapers of all sizes – although larger sizes between four and six – are in the hottest demand. They are also in need of baby wipes, and new, twin-size sheet sets.

Donated goods can be dropped off in the lobby of Scarsdale Police Headquarters at any time between Friday, Oct. 10 and Tuesday, Nov. 18, when they will be delivered to the shelter.

Scarsdale Detective Lt. Thomas Altizio said that he hopes Scarsdale children will invest in the goods to help My Sister’s Place, rather than spending money on more common Halloween mischief fare such as eggs, shaving cream, “silly string” and toilet paper.

“We are asking that parents encourage their children to forgo the purchase of the many items that are so often used to cause mischief on Halloween, and instead put the money toward items (for) My Sister’s Place,” he said in a statement. “Clients of the shelter have been extremely grateful for support from the Scarsdale community in the past, and we are looking forward to another successful drive.”
