My Sister’s Place – Our congregation runs an annual “gently used” clothing drive to benefit My Sister’s Place – a unique family thrift shop located in the heart of downtown Ansonia, CT. All proceeds from My Sister’s Place support Birmingham Group Health Services’ Umbrella Program serving women and children who are affected by domestic violence by providing emergency shelter, counseling, therapy, advocacy, and other critical services that offer hope and help save lives.
