The Shop on Market St. is a woman-owned, LGBTQ-friendly, business. Furthermore, giving back to our community and supporting those less fortunate than us will always be a priority for us.
Below are some of the charities and organizations we are proud to support, sponsor, and participate in.
Blue Beards for Charity is a nonprofit supported by officers in ~18 Chester County police departments, established to support four local causes – Unite for HER, The Sambuco Children’s Educational Fund, A Child’s Light, and Chester County Crime Victims Center.
The Shop on Market St. holds an annual Shave Off event each November in support of Blue Beards for Charity. Learn more.
BLUE BEARDS FOR CHARITY
Socks remain the #1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters, especially so during the winter months.
Each winter, we invite the West Chester community to donate new socks, in original packaging, to warm the feet of many during the holiday season. Our goal is to collect at least 3,000 pairs of socks for distribution to local homeless shelters.
