SCHIP’s treasures granted to local non-profits

Shelburne Charlotte Hinesburg Interfaith Projects (SCHIP) recently announced its latest awards in the amount of $23,600 in community grants. To date over $490,000 has been distributed to nonprofits organizations serving residents in the towns of Shelburne, Charlotte, and Hinesburg since 2004. The funds are generated by the sale of gently used clothing, art, jewelry, home goods and accessories at its shop located in the distinctive yellow house on Route 7 in the heart of Shelburne.
