Grand Market Cares:
Help Keep Our Neighbors Warm

New Rochelle’s Grand Market is supporting the Larchmont Newcomers’ Club’s annual Off the Hook fall coat drive, which collects coats for the New Rochelle Boys & Girls Club, New Rochelle CAP, Hope Community Services and the Mamaroneck Child Development Center.

We will host a coat collection box at the Market Manager’s table every Saturday through the end of October.

Those who bring a warm winter coat (or two!) to the Grand Market’s box are eligible to enter their name into raffle for a gift basket of Grand Market goodies. Each coat equals another opportunity to enter the raffle. Warm men’s coats sized XXL are especially needed.

A special project of the New Rochelle Public Library, the Children’s Garden is open weekly from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
