SCHIP celebrates 10-year anniversary

Ten years ago, the faith communities in Shelburne, Charlotte, and Hinesburg united in an effort to meet the needs of their three communities; and thus, the non-profit SCHIP, the Shelburne Charlotte Hinesburg Interfaith Project, was formed.

The group rented space in the old Noonan House, a yellow Victorian home located in the center of Shelburne Village. SCHIP’s Treasure Resale Shop began as a boutique-like store featuring donated quality used clothing, jewelry, and home goods. It continues to generate funds to grant to other non-profits. To date, over $450,000 has been distributed to schools, churches, fire departments, scholarships, food shelves, and many community organizations and programs.

Below is a preliminary list of some of the activities planned to kick off the yearlong celebration and to thank all who have donated, volunteered, and contributed to SCHIP’s success.
