We use your donations of cash, clothing, footwear, household items, motor vehicles, and computer equipment to help support
our services for individuals with disabilities or other challenges right here in South Central Wisconsin. Plus, our practice of selling donated goods helps keep items out of landfills.
Seventy-eight percent of our revenue is generated through the sale of donated goods.
Textiles that are not sold to the public are used to make products such as carpet pads or are
third world countries where there is a great need for clothing. Donated computer equipment
that is not sold to the public is sold to a recycler who, among other things, will not export waste.
In 2013, 15,714,230 pounds
of donated goods were diverted from area landfills and were
used to generate revenue
for life-changing services for local residents with disabilities
or other challenges.
