Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive: January 28 – 30, 2022

Thank you for supporting Recycle the Warmth 2022! Each year, hundreds of families and individuals turn to St. Vincent de Paul — Madison for blankets and bedding. Please join us this year for our 30th Annual Blanket Drive! We are collecting new and gently used blankets and bedding to disperse to clients seeking our help throughout the year. There are multiple ways to get involved!

What and where to donate and/or purchase:

  1. GIVE A MONETARY DONATION so we can purchase new blankets
  2. PURCHASE and DONATE new blankets (Available at any St. Vinny’s Thrift Store in Dane County for $14.99, plus tax, January 28th – 30th)
  3. DONATE gently used blankets and bedding (Drop off at any St. Vinny’s Thrift Store or participating church, January 28th – 30th)

What will St. Vinny’s do with blankets?
All the bedding we collect or purchase during Recycle the Warmth will be given away to people with low incomes who request help with clothing and/or furniture vouchers from the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. St. Vincent de Paul members visit homes and provide vouchers to St. Vinny’s stores for essential furniture and household goods, as well as new airbeds that come with sheets and the blankets donors generously gave during Recycle the Warmth.

When to donate: Friday through Sunday, January 28th – 30th, 2022.

“It may be hard to visualize all those who benefited from receiving more than $2.6 million in assistance from us last year. But I invite you to stretch your imagination even further to see the good the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has done during the 90 years it has been at work here in Madison.”
