Morristown charity forced to shut down, halt used car sales
After more than 30 years of helping the homeless and drug-addicted, the Market Street Mission has been forced to shut down.
To help fund services, the non-profit group has been selling donated cars for cash at its George Street warehouse. There, men in recovery clean the cars and assist in the sales process. But now that the dealership has been advertised, local Morristown residents complained saying it would attract more people to the area, and will increase traffic to their generally quiet town.
The Morristown Board of Adjustment has cited the mission for violating zoning laws by selling cars on their property. Mission leaders are currently finding other locations to house the used cars.
