    My husband and I live in the area. We cleaned out our closets and wondered if you took housing/clothing donations – or if you could direct us to a facility near by.

      Thank you for your interest in donating items! St. Mary’s does take clothing and small household items, which are distributed for free. You can leave items off on the picnic tables in the churchyard Monday to Saturday. Other good places to donate items are Goodwill, located 2196 Fifth Avenue (135th Street) Phone # 212-862-0020 and at 512 West 181st Street (between Amsterdam and Audubon) Phone # 212-923-7910.

    • stmarysharlem says:

      St. Mary’s does not have storage room, so if you have more than a small number of items. i recommend donating to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. Contact the Church Office at 212-864-4013 for further information.

    I am going through my mother’s memories and I found St. Mary’s membership directories from the 30’s and 40’s – just a few but rather than toss them, I’m wondering whether the church could use a few more for the archives. I’ll always protect them but my family won’t. Rev. Ackley saved my mother and sister from an orphanage even though their mother (who had a job) and grandparents were alive. They grew into amazingly strong women. She adored him. She carried his spirit with her throughout her life. I wish I had asked more questions.
    So anyone interested? I would be glad to mail them.

    • stmarysharlem says:

      If you still have the directories, we would love to have them. We now have completed renovations and have a new Rector who can keep track of things like that. The address is The Rev. Mary Foulke, 521 West 126th St, New York, NY 10027. God bless, Dorothy Ross

      • Ellen Mousin says:

        You’ve caught me amidst managing a Harriet Tubman Conference in Cambridge, MD – the area where she grew up. As you know she is a saint in the Episcopal Church – a humanitarian who many of us can just dream about doing. That will be over next week, then I will get back to the books. Your message warmed my heart, I kind of just stopped all the work on behalf of my mother when it seemed that no one was interested. I didn’t see what was going on in your parish, sounds like positive steps. The Church National Archives in TX was willing to take them but this will be better. Interesting how things are coming together for this small family, story for another day.
        Sincerely, Ellen Mousin

      • stmarysharlem says:

        The conference about Harriet Tubman sounds wonderful. Hope it all goes well. No rush about the directories – they have already been waiting a long time! God bless, Dorothy

    Do you still accept some donations? I’m moving and I’m donating some small stuff – used oven toaster and swifffer.

    Nothing big, but can be helpful.

  9. Good Morning,

    I came across your page and wanted to reach out and introduce myself.

    My name is Michael Palacios and I work for The Junkluggers, an eco-friendly furniture removal company focused on donation, reuse, and recycling. Every day we haul away furniture, books, clothes, and more that our customers no longer want/need anymore and strive to keep what we can out of the landfill. Most if not all the items we remove are still in excellent shape and we’re constantly looking to expand our partners so I was hoping to connect and get some more information.

    Please let me know who I should be speaking with and what the best way to get in touch with them is. I look forward to hearing from you soon and learning more on how your donations process works.

    Michael Palacios

    Best Regards, Peace, Love, and Junk!

    I hope you are having a wonderful evening. I have a bag full of beautiful clothing that I don’t need anymore majority of it can be worn for interviews and I also have a pair of knee high boots that are brand new that aren’t comfortable for me. Do you still collect Clothing? I’ve had this bag for 2 years now all other companies will not do pick ups or have strict rules on what they will accept. Please contact me I am currently living on 137th st and can walk over anytime!

    Have a wonderful day!
