Donations Make the World Go ‘Round

Donations can be dropped off at our Racine location. We ask that all donations are cleaned prior to dropping off, and please do not donate broken or damaged items. We have to pay to have all the rejected items hauled away, which takes money from helping foster kids.

What we CAN take:

  • Clothing – All sizes from infant to adult. Clothing donations are best when in kitchen sized garbage bags. This makes them easy to manage and store. Please do not use boxes. As of 4/25/2020, if you could hold on from donation clothing until we can get back up to speed with donation sorting, that would be much appreciated. We still take all non-clothing items below.
  • Purses and handbags
  • Scarves, hats, gloves & mittens
  • belts and accessories
  • Jewelry
