SCHIP (Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg Interfaith Project) has announced its Autumn 2021 grant awards.
Recent monies in the amount of $15,010 were awarded to 11 non-profits in
our towns that met the criteria of serving the people of our communities in a variety of ways. The recipients for this cycle included: Champlain Housing Trust; The Charlotte Food
Shelf; Chittenden County Young Life; Friends of Lyceum; Hinesburg Community Resource Center; Kidpower Vermont; ReSource; Shelburne Nursery School; St.Catherine of Sienna; Vermont
Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and Vermont Humanities Council.
These awards are made possible as a result of SCHIP’s mission to raise
funds through the sale of donated, gently used clothing, household items, accessories, art, and collectibles at its resale shop in the distinctive yellow building on Route 7, next to the town
offices. Since the first grants given in April 2005, more than $779,000 has been distributed.
SCHIP accepts grant
applications twice a year. The deadlines are April 15 and October 15 of each year. The maximum grant size is $3,000. Application forms are available on the “Contacts” page at www.schipstreasure.org.
As a member of our communities, you too are an intimate
part of our mission. Come shop, donate, volunteer, and help us continue to meet our objectives for the future. For more information on grant recipients or the organization, please visit
