Organizations Seeking Donations
CATHOLIC CHARITIES OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK CLOTHING BIN
Located in the parking lot of our church at 431 Fifth Avenue, River Edge.
Your unwanted clothing and shoes provide valuation assets for continued help to distressed individuals and families. The funds collected as a result of your donations combined with monies from other participating parishes throughout the Archdiocese alleviate the sufferings of the needy who seek relief through the many operations of Catholic Charities. The shelters at St. Lucy’s in Jersey City and St. Bridget’s in Newark provide food, accommodations and overall care for the homeless throughout the year.
Please note that in addition to all forms of used clothing we also welcome small appliances, shoes, linens, sheets, towels, stuffed animals and books (no reference books).
