Please go through a closet at home with your family and clean out old clothing that you no longer want or fits. Pass it along to a friend, family member or family in need. You’ll feel proud about your organized closet and helping someone special. If you are looking for where donations are being accepted, there are five clothing drop boxes sponsored by the Ridgefield Park Fire Department (Elks -rear lot, DPW- Industrial Avenue, VFW- side lot by Bergen Turnpike, HP Auto Repair- Hazelton Street, Westview Gas Station- side lot by Railroad Avenue and Third Street).
