As part of an annual spring ritual, many people still hold to the time-honored tradition of “spring cleaning” their homes and de-cluttering.  If you are among those who try to get rid of unwanted items and don’t know where to donate them, look no further than SAGE’s Resale Shop, located at 31B Chatham Road in Summit. 

One of the best benefits to giving your unwanted possessions to the Resale Shop is that the funds raised from sales goes directly back into the community for programs and services for older adults that are provided by SAGE Eldercare, also in Summit, at 290 Broad Street.

Entire and partial estate donations are accepted and new and one-of-a-kind items are always welcome.  If you have large or heavy items, such as furniture, that you are donating, they would appreciate a call to arrange for pick-up.  Items that can be carried into the store are accepted during business hours, Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm.

“Although the shop welcomes donations of furniture and larger items, we are currently looking for items that are smaller such as housewares, lamps, china, and gently-used and in-season clothing,” stated Rose Rittweger, Manager of SAGE’s Resale Shop.

Since 1959, the SAGE Resale Shop has helped provide funds for SAGE’s programs and services.  They offer an unusual variety and exceptional quality of goods, along with reasonable prices, which attracts shoppers and collectors in the area.  Regular visits to the shop ensure the opportunity to find and purchase ever-changing merchandise and special treasures.

Whether you’re looking for a good home for your gently-used goods or a bargain, come by SAGE’s Resale Shop.  For questions, please call 908.273.5564 or visit www.sageeldercare.org.

For the past 60 years, SAGE Eldercare has been helping make the communities they serve an amazing place to age.  The organization provides a wide array of information, support, and services designed to help people lead the most independent and active lives possible.  From helping with errands, to exercise classes, community programs, and home health care, SAGE’s expertise helps older adults remain in their own homes.  SAGE is committed to being the leading provider of programs and services to meet the changing needs of older adults, their families, and caregivers throughout Union, Essex, Morris and Somerset Counties.
