Now offering scheduled/no-contact pickups on a limited basis.

** 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. Even though our store locations and their donation centers remain temporarily closed, 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.

Starting Wed., April 29, we are able to offer scheduled, no-contact home pickup of bagged or boxed clothing, shoes or other small household items (sorry, no furniture) on a limited basis.

Call (608)-278-2920 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to request a scheduled, no-contact home pickup.

Pickup notes
1. At this time we are only able to accept clothing, shoes and small household items that are properly packed and fully enclosed in boxes or bags. Due to limited staffing to load, store and process items, we are unable to take furniture or other loose items not properly packed in boxes or bags.
2. This is a nocontact pickup service, and items must be left outside; drivers will be unable to enter any buildings, including apartments and retirement homes, so please leave items outside in an easily accessible area (on covered front porch, in driveway, in or near garage, or if need be alongside curb and clearly marked “for donation.”)
3.  Weather permitting, donations should be placed outside by 7:30 a.m. on your day of pickup.

(Items must protected from weather damage. If it is raining on the day of your pickup, please plan to wait to receive notice from your driver about our truck’s approximate ETA, prior to putting items outside if they would be exposed, and then please protect them with a tarp or some other covering to keep them dry).
