MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Members of the Outreach Committee at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Maplewood gathered a truckload of gently used children’s clothing and household goods earlier this month to help stock the thrift store at Holy Trinity Church in West Orange. Available for sale, the donations help provide essential services for neighbors of Holy Trinity, which also hosts Christine’s Kitchen and a food pantry.
