Part of the reason we operate local thrift stores is to be able to provide basic-needs items, including clothing, free to people experiencing hard times. Our clothing is provided from the inventory of our Dane County stores; you’ll need a voucher issued by our Service Center (2033 Fish Hatchery Road in Madison) or by one of our many St. Vincent de Paul member groups around the county in order to receive a clothing voucher and shop with it. The value limit on a clothing voucher is up to $35 per eligible adult (up to two per household) and up to $25 per eligible child (up through 17 years of age).
To receive a clothing voucher, adults will need to supply a photo ID and proof of address. For children, we’ll need to see some form of ID, too; a Social Security card, a birth certificate and a school ID are all acceptable forms of child identification for this purpose. Clothing vouchers must be redeemed within seven days from the date they are issued. Please call (608) 257-0919 if you would like more information.
