Donations for Those in Need

    Orla Roche (in photo) said she lost weight during the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to clean out her closet and donate what no longer fit. She deposited several bags of clothing into the large green bin, owned by a non-profit organization, across the parking lot from Rite-Aid. While hauling bags from her car, she heard, “Thank you for donating!” from across the lot. The woman explained the items left on the ground next to the blue, for-profit bins, are for the neediest of the needy. “They’ve lost their jobs. They have no money. They come here for clothing and food items, which I and many others leave for them,” she said. “I left some canned goods and clothing one day last week and the next day everything was gone.”
