New Hope for Women recently made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Pop Up Shop due to the pandemic. This event, a sale of women’s quality new and gently used clothing and accessories held in Rockland, raised $36,000 last year. With the difficult choice to cancel came the knowledge that New Hope for Women would experience a loss in revenue. The Pop Up Shop Committee reached out to many to ask for donations to help lessen the impact of this loss. Over $9,500 was raised to assist victims of domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. We are grateful for these donations and for the community commitment to our advocacy, prevention and education work.

The Pop Up Shop will return in 2021. The committee is actively soliciting donations of new and gently used clothing and accessories. Contact jlemole@newhopeforwomen.org or call 594-2128 to arrange for pick up or drop off.
