    The manager of Manhattan Community Board No. 9 reports that you thrift shop. I’d like to donate some gently used clothing, towels, etc. What are your office hours during which I might drop these off?

      You may drop off the clothing at any time during the day by placing the clothing on the tables in the church garden. All donations are deeply appreciated!
