Hi,

What's the best way to donate a huge box of gently used clothes to the homeless without access to a car. Public transport is not a feasible option for me as the box is too big & heavy for me to carry it.

Do you know of any local DTJC shelters that will accept donations via usps or fedex? What about a volunteer with a car who can deliver the box from my location in VVP to the shelter? As per their website, Vietnam Veterans do not pick up donations from my location.

Thanks! Humane society was able to take towels, pillows and sheets. Hope House is not currently accepting donations.

Any other ideas for where I can drop off gently used women's clothing?

also:
Hope House
246 2nd Street (between Erie and Manilla)
201) 420-1070

an emergency shelter for women and children, serving up to 17 families at a time, and usually running at capacity.

Towels, bed covers:

Where can I donate used clothing, towels, bed linens, etc. in downtown Jersey City to a non profit?

Not interested in Salvation Army. Heard poor reviews of Goodwill.

Thoughts?

There are PlanetAid boxes by the BestBuy, but after a little research on this organization, I decided not to donate to them.

I've dropped off some stuff at a donation box in the parking lot behind St. Lucy's Shelter on 16th and Grove. (and there was not a band of gypsies there to waylay the drop)

There's also the CAUSE Center at 741 Bergen Avenue (just off Fairmount). They're usually open between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and they're a local organization.


Finally getting around to donating these clothes. I've tried calling them a couple times the past few days and no one answers. Anyone else got a line on where to donate? About to say #OOPS# it and go to Goodwill, despite my reservations about how they treat their workers.

Last time there was a typhoon, there was a Jersey City collection. There will probably be one for Typhoon Haiyan.

this is great to know! they got a really good rating on Charity Navigator: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index ... &orgid=11547#.UnvZHpQiGTs

there's another veteran's charity that does pickup - VVA (vietnam vets of America, I think?) but they've got a really lousy score, with the bulk of their cash going toward administrative overhead.



yeah, i think i posted the link to the "wrong" vets.

this looks like the AMVETS i was talking about; http://amvetspickup.org/

although i can't seem to find a NJ location. DERP.

I used to shop/donate to the Salvation Army and Goodwill regularly but the SA's political lobbying against gay rights and Goodwill's worker abuses mean they won't get any more of my $$. I wasn't aware of either of these issues until friends brought it to my attention so figured I'd pass the info along in case these are factors you consider when donating.

There's a bit of info here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10 ... -companies_n_4110344.html

http://money.msn.com/now/blog--goodwi ... d-workers-pennies-an-hour


also, a lot of clothing donated to SA and GW ends up in underdeveloped countries. sounds good, right? cheap levis for everybody! but it's actually having a negative effect on local textile industries:

Try Liberty Humane Society - I believe they can use them for the pets in their care. They are a great local organization and always in need of monetary and other types of donations:

235 Jersey City Blvd Jersey City, NJ 07305
(201) 547-4147

Across from Liberty Science Center - easy parking on the street

they've told me that they are often in need of kitchen items, too. weirdly, they don't need toys/books (or at least they didn't the last time I dropped off clothing).

here is their number: (201) 420-1070
