We accept seasonally appropriate gently used clothing for children and adults, along with household items. We are unable to accept electronics and items larger than a microwave. We are not able to accept donations of furniture. If you have a main piece of furniture to donate (bed, couch, kitchen table and chairs), send a picture to Jennifer at or call John Haunfelder 262-442-4016. John is a member of the Sussex Area Service Club and may be able to help find a new home for your donated furniture. In order to donate furniture, you would need to allow us time to post pictures and find a home, so if you are short on time, you may need to find another location to donate to.

All of the clothing and housewares items are available to our clients at no cost to them. Your donations will help those in need right here in your own community. Having these items allow our clients access to vital items for their homes, in addition to the food that is provided.
