Doing some spring cleaning? Empyting your closets of clothes you no longer wear or need? There’s an easy way to divest yourself of them and do a good deed at the same time.
In a new fundraising effort for its Community Policing (COP) program, the Kearny Police Department is now accepting donations of used clothing — and shoes.
The KPD says the clothing and shoes can be in any condition and for adults or children.
The items will be sold to a collection company, and money raised will go toward the annual Junior Police Academy, the Bike Safety Fair and the senior citizens’ picnic — all popular local events.
The new collection bins have been set up within the Kearny Department of Public Works yard, located at 357 Bergen Ave., east of Schuyler Ave.
You can bring your donations there Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (The yard is not accessible on Sundays.)
