I've brought stuff there. It is always happily received.
(They can also use toiletries and kitchen supplies.)

Are there any reputable places in the area to donate gently used children's clothing? I want to make sure it goes to those in need and not resold.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Do these drop boxes belong to the Salvation Army? Are they for a non-profit?

St Lucy's Shelter (201) 656-7201. 619 Grove St. It is on the otherside of the tunnel. I believe just men's but I could be wrong. I donated just men's clothing.

The Hope House, on 2nd between Manila and Erie, happily accepts clean, good-condition women's and children's clothes. There's somebody there to accept drop offs 24/7.

Salvation Army at 248 Erie St (201) 653-3071. It's an easy dropoff and I believe they are open Saturdays until 4pm.

Hi we have a bunch of clothes and books we would like to donate. Any suggestions close to downtown Jersey City? Preferably someplace that accepts weekend drop offs.

Thanks!

Prom season is just around the corner, and Catherine's Closet wants to make sure all girls have a dress to wear.

Catherine's Closet, a nonprofit organization that collects used gowns and accessories and distributes them to needy local high students to wear to their school proms, is now accepting prom wear donations.

Donations can be dropped off 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at Essex County Community College, 730 Bloomfield Ave.

Gowns must be clean, on hangers and age appropriate. The organization is in need of large-size gowns.

According to Sandy Kessler, founder of Catherine's Closet, more than 10,000 dresses have been distributed since the program began in 2002. For more information, call (973) 877-6593.

Does anyone know any local charities that collect gently used prom dresses? I found some possibilities on google but they seem out of date. Sometimes schools will do a drive.... thanks!

They use the money for the rehabilitated drug users who live upstairs, the guys who work there are all rehabilitated, even the nice man at the counter who is the manager. They are all great people and it really warms my heart to see them doing so well. I am sure they use it for other good programs too, but that is the only one that I know of for sure.

+1 Salvation Army. Donated many bags of very good clothing there over the years. I don't mind that they resell - they resell and use the money for their charitable programs, it's fine by me, and it's trustworthy. I never use the donation bins - don't trust them at all.

If you are intimidated by our homeless, simply leave your clean adult size clothing on a few benches with a note - FREE CLOTHING. It will not be long before your clothes a distributed and any left over can be collected and placed in those clothes bins near the Newport Mall carpark.

That is a bad idea, making the parks look sloppy with discarded clothing scattered about. Let us not invite homeless people to squatter in the park like a shelter or bus station in the dead of winter.

I use the Red Cross donation bin next to the fire house on Marin.
The donation bins in the SR parking lot are run by a for-profit private company.

+1 for St Lucy's and Salvation Army. For work clothes and dress shoes, contact Dress for Success, which is on Brunswick Street.

Another reason not to put clothing in the bins...it may vary based on the organization, but many times the clothing in those bins just go to the rag market, and used for things like stuffing mattresses. This made me sad when I found out, because I had previously donated nice professional clothing.

Also, sometimes they are run by for profit business masquerading as charities.

St. Lucy's Shelter accepts both men's and women's clothing. They'll accept them most times, just give them a call before coming over and someone will meet you out front.

I have a few bags of clothing I would like to donate. However, I REFUSE to go to the donation bins in the Shoprite shopping center. On the weekends, people (mostly older women) hang around there and try to "intercept" you before you are able to put your bags in the donation bins. I am not sure what is going on here, but if I had to guess they are collecting the clothing and selling them to thrift shops, who I believe pay for clothing. They literally sit there all day - not sure why the cops have not gotten involved yet, as it has been years they have been doing this.

In any event, does anyone know any where else in JC I can bring these bags of clothing?
