SCHIP (Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg Interfaith Project) has announced its Spring 2021 grant awards. Recent monies in the amount of $14,060 were awarded to 6 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: COTS, VERMONT PARKS FOREVER, PREVENT CHILD ABUSE-VERMONT, SHADER CROFT SCHOOL, SHELBURNE RESCUE, and YWCA CAMP HOCHELAGA.
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 $764,000 has been distributed.






“Silver and gold, silver and gold, everyone wishes for silver and gold” so the song says but not so much anymore… forever treasures to some are signs of times long past and out of date to others. Maybe you have some sterling silver or silverplate or old gold jewelry (even if broken) that has been sitting around taking up space. You’re amazed your kids don’t want it…. silverware, teapots, candlesticks!! SCHIP (Shelburne, Charlotte, Hinesburg Interfaith Projects) Resale shop would love to have your treasures if no one else in your family wants them. 

It will help us improve our bottom line and our bottom line is what allows us to give away thousands of dollars a year to people in our own communities who are in need. As you can imagine, there will be so much more need as we enter into the cold months of winter and SCHIP can use your help! Please look around and see if you have some unwanted silver, gold or even silverplate that you would be willing to donate to SCHIP and give us a call if you can’t get it to the shop yourself. We will come and pick it up. 

The shop is located on Rt 7 (in the distinctive yellow building), next to the Town Offices with parking in the rear. It is open M-F, 10-5 and Saturday, 10-4. Call Scarlett Ober at (802) 233-8178 with any questions.

Not all is the same but most things such as high-quality merchandise and friendly service will be ever-present.   



Donations will be accepted with these variations.  Two small or medium-sized boxes or bags at a time, please.  Donations should be placed on the wooden bench on the porch. If you would like a tax receipt, just pop into the store and we will be happy to provide that.


Our employees are required to wear masks in the presence of customers or in close proximity to their co-workers and therefore our customers will be required to do the same for the time being.
