The residents of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill were already generously supplying the Tillary Shelter with enough clothes for residents, but the shelter was not able to accept donations of personal
care products and intimate clothing. With funding from City Council Majority Leader Laurie Cumbo, One Community created a solution in 2018, providing enough of these products for 200 residents plus each new resident that year. The wonderful boutique and center of good energy, Jill Lindsey, stepped up to keep shelter residents permanently supplied with intimate apparel and personal care items with the proceeds of an annual fundraiser, pandemics permitting, and event at their Myrtle Avenue store.
