The 'House Next Door' Needs Donations
Household items, clothes, books, movies and toys are accepted throughout the year.
After a busy holiday season, the shelves at the "House Next Door" to the Aldersgate United Methodist Church are bare.
The building sells clothes, toys, household items and almost anything that it receives in donations for a nominal price , with the proceeds going to help the Crisis Room food pantry next door.
“The Crisis Room always takes donations, and then there’s the house next door. We were cleaned out of a lot of stuff at Christmas,” said volunteer Florence Klancer. “A lot of stuff went and we got rid of a lot.”
The house also provides a place for people in need to get a variety of items at reasonable prices, including books, toys, clothes, suits and more.
To make a donation, bring donations to the white house next to Aldersgate United Methodist Church Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday. Store ours are 1 to 3 p.m., but volunteers are usually on site at around noon to take donations. The house has a request for a crib, but asks that donations of furniture not be given.
To make a donation to the shop, bring them to the store Sunday, Tuesday or Thursday during regular business hours, 1 to 3 p.m., or at around noon on those days. To make a monetary donations, makes checks out to the church and send them to 568 Ryders Lane, East Brunswick, N.J. 08816.
