Have Used And Non-Wearable Clothing? Drop It Into The New ‘Deja New’ Bin

[UPDATED] If you have used and torn clothing which you no longer need, you can now make good use of it. Deja New, a clothing G’mach, has set up a separate division for such clothing, which can be donated by dropping into a large yellow clothing donation bin. The bin is located in the parking lot of the James Street NPGS.

All proceeds from the bin go to Tzedakah.

From Deja New:

Déjà New’s collection bin is located in the parking lot of the James Street Co-op. We accept all kinds of unwearable clothing, shoes and linens, and stuffed animals. Absolutely all of the proceeds for this bin go to Tzedakah, which as far as we know, is a first of its kind.
Our Déjà New store for all ladies, maternity and children clothing is located at 66 Birch, entrance on right side. (Birch is off of Route 9, one block South of James Street) Our hours are Sunday through Thursday 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m until 2 p.m. Tuesday evenings 8:00 p.m. until 9:30.
Most of the clothing in our store costs between ten cents and 4 dollars for children and one dollar to 5 dollars for adults. Déjà New is set up in an organized fashion and looks like a regular clothing store.
We accept clothing in excellent condition and current style. Anything that is not, can go to our yellow donation bin. For the men’s clothing G’mach, please call Avital Lowenthal. The mens G’mach is located in the Pawnne area.
To date Déjà New has donated 50,000 dollars to various tzedakas from the store proceeds. Some of these tzedakahs include Tomchei Shabbos, Bikur Cholim, Stam G’mach, Hatzoloh, plus more. It is a revolving concept. Those who drop off their clothing benefit those who buy them, those who buy them, benefit the Tzedakas to which the proceeds go.
Deja New Store is open to everyone.

  1. Why would they want torn clothing as your article states its ok to give them? I throw those out. I only give away clothes that I would put on my kids but don’t because they outgrew them.

  2. I’ve seen the bin @ NPGS James.
    Sign says they take shoes.
    They list all there tzedakas @ their store on Birch (amazing).
    I believe them cuz its all public info.
    The other bins around are well-known questionable, tho. why don’t they put out more of these around town?

  3. Torn clothing can be sold by the tzedaka as shmattes, so instead of throwing out unwearable clothing, drop it in the big yellow bin, and the tzedaka will make a little money on it.

  4. this operation is truly amazing anyone can shop there. There are many not just Lakewood families who benefit by shopping here. Every dollar above expenses is distributed to many charitable organizations.(to date about $60,000)
    Please keep on sending to 66 Birch only children and ladies new or like new clothing and shoes. The yellow bin is for everything else please note that all proceeds from yellow bin (unlike other bins all over town) is for tzedaka

  5. Not only torn items. All items that are worn or stained or outdated, that aren’t up the standards for their store, can go into the bin.
    This way they can turn these unsellable items into tzedakah, too!
    Plenty of people shop at Birch looking for NEW clothing at bizarre low prices. The turn-over is mind boggling.
