Reader Mail: Clothing Donations?

11/26/2007:

This is the time of year (especially with that guy on the bench yesterday), that your unused (and warm) clothing could be of use to many less fortunate people.

I can never remember where the good places are. I know the St. Mary Thrift store used to take them, but can never get the story straight. There’s also a Salvation Army location near the outbound lanes of the Holland Tunnel.

Are there any others in town?

He writes:

“Hi Hoboken411,

I was wondering if you could provide a list of places in hoboken where people could drop off clothes they would like to donate? I know in other parts of Jersey there are drop boxes for this stuff but I never see any in Hoboken.

Thanks for your help and I think the site is great!”

Thanks for that information. Now I know a good-intended spot for my recently deceased husbands’ suits. I used to do the Salvation Army for all decent cast-offs, but a local establishment suits me better!

“in Jesus Name” at Our Lady of Grace Convent 411 Clinton St (in the basement). April Harris runs a clothing and food bank there for the poorer families.

give them away on Freecycle.org. They have a Hudson county site and a Hoboken site. Just sign up and then post away. I have given away a ton of stuff on there. Not tax deductible but giving to needy folks.
