Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive: January 29, 30 and 31, 2021

Thank you for supporting our Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive. Although our event concluded last week, you can still drop off blankets at our stores and let the staff know they are for RTW. And for the next few days you may continue to donate online ($13.99 per blanket) right here.

We’ve teamed up with News3Now, watch Recycle the Warmth video here

Thanks to the donors, volunteers & sponsors who make our annual Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive a success! 
St. Vincent de Paul annually provides hundreds of needy people in Dane County with good-quality donated and new bedding. Area churches, our 7 Dane County St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores; News 3 Now/Channel 3000, and Mid-West Family Broadcasting radio stations are all supporting this annual blanket drive. For the next few days, you can still donate online here or drop off blankets at our stores. 

What will St. Vinny’s do with blankets?
All the bedding we collect or purchase during the drive will be given away 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.

“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.”
