Give Your Clutter to Charity – Salvation Army Jersey City

By Kathy Zucker • Sunday, November 24, 2013

With five family members and three kids ages 7, 5, and 1, the clutter piles up awfully fast in my home. Nothing gets me decluttering faster than guests coming over, and I am hosting Thanksgiving this year. A massive decluttering session was at the top of the weekend agenda.

For the last 12 years, I have been donating bags of clothing, books, furniture and household goods to the Salvation Army Thrift Store at 248 Erie Street in Jersey City. Yelp reviewers called it, “One of the few locations of Salvation army where donations are easier to make,” and referenced the tax deduction receipts handed out with every donation.

So what makes the Jersey City Salvation Army so easy to donate? For starters, they are open seven days a week. Historically, I have been able to drop off donations as late as 10 pm, although I don’t recommend driving around with bags of goodies that late at night.

Much to my surprise, when I arrived at the Salvation Army yesterday evening, I discovered a new set of rules in place.


The new drop-off location is on the 15th Street side of the building – I generally drive from Hoboken along Grove Street and make a right at 15th Street just before the Home Depot. Parking can be tight on weekdays during business hours, but there are usually a few spots open on weekend evenings.
