A Roosevelt Island resident asked this morning:
Some co-residents on Roosevelt Island and myself were trying to find a place to donate clothes on the island. Do you by any chance know of a place that accepts donations on the island? Thank you for any guidance you can provide!I replied:
With the closing of the Thrift Shop, I am not aware of a place on Roosevelt Island to donate clothes.
I will ask around and get back to you.
