We have a large donation bin on location (1632 W Main St, Sun Prairie) for drop off during donation hours (see above). If you want to make sure that your clothing stays local and helps out someone in the Sun Prairie Area School District, then we can help you accomplish that.

Once we receive your donation, we sort and store for the time of need. That call usually comes from the school, the SP Police Department, or other community agencies. We try to push for a 24 hour turn around.

For items we do not have that are requested, we have an email list that we utilize for such request. We will also post on this page. As you know, with times of crisis, a quick response is usually best so, we work hard to meet every request that comes in.
