Who We Are

Here at Starfish Swap, we partner with Long Island schools, churches, and community organizations to provide students of families in need with clothing and accessories for school.


We offer stylized clothing packages with new and recycled clothing, shoes, and accessories to students at no cost. The package's apparel and accessories are gathered from participating schools, churches, community members, and local merchants and recycled back to the greater communities to benefit school age children from local families. This help keeps good clothing out of the landfills, and find new homes. 

In 2017, Starfish Swap expanded and ran a pilot program with the Life Skills Program at Ward Melville Summer Program.  Students in the program gathered the school's lost and found clothing then washed, dried, and sorted the items to be donated and used at upcoming Back-to-School clothing events. The program was a great success and we look forward to more students joining the program when it is implemented in the 2018-19 school year curriculum. 

 

How You Can Help

Clothing and accessory contributions are the foundation of our mission. By making a personal contribution, business contribution, or by hosting a clothing drive, you can help clothe local children on Long Island.

We are always looking to add new team members to join us to sort, organize, or pack donations. Whether you are looking for a weekly or once in a while commitment, we look forward to having you as part of our team.

Starfish Swap is run entirely on donations from community members like you. Whether you are able to contribute financially or by making an item donation we appreciate the show of support for our cause.
