Donation Hours:
Check your favorite store page for hours! There are also drop boxes that can handle a limited amount of donations at a handful of parishes around the Madison area. Check out drop box locations here.

It will be a no-contact drop off and we will be asking donors to remain in their vehicles and we will unload it for them from their trunk or backseat. We will also be asking that everything be contained for ease of unloading and storage. PLEASE do not drop off prior to the opening of the drive-throughs.

Thrift stores see donation influx, includes trash (Watch 2 min. video here.)

Please check what you are donating before you drop off. Beat-up items or “trash” are difficult to resell and costs money to dispose of, which hurts our organization and makes it difficult to support our programs (food pantry, free pharmacy and housing). Thanks for your consideration and check out the NBC 15 video above that featured our Processing Manager, John Cobb.

We know that while safer at home, many of our supporters have been reducing what they no longer need around the house and are anxious to promote reuse & recycling through our stores. We look forward to “upcycling” donations of gently used goods now into sales later that will support our mission of helping our Dane County neighbors in need.

“Shop with your heart. Great place to start – on your budget and community. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle, too. We can do it all at St. Vinny's. Oh, let's go shop St. Vinny's. Yeah. Let's go shop St. Vinny's. Yeah. Let's go shop St. Vinny's. Yeah. Let's go shop St. Vinny's.”
