We accept most household furniture, small kitchen appliances (coffee makers, toasters, blenders, electric skillets, "George Foreman" type grills, etc.), dishes, flatware, food storage (i.e.: Tupperware (R)), cable ready flat screen TV's, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, etc (we are in need of tall dressers). When electronic items are donated, we will require the recycling fee for First Choice Recycling. If the item does not work properly, we will recycle it. If it does work, the fee will be a donation to Sofas for Service.
All items must be in good, clean condition, not need repair; upholstered items cannot have had pets on them or have any tears or stains. We want to keep our standards high and uplift our veterans; also, some of our veterans have allergies to pets.
You are welcome to drop off your donations at our warehouse on Wednesday and Saturday mornings (0930-1130 a.m.) or at other times by appointment. Call (715) 309-9663 to arrange for drop off or pickup. If a pickup is needed, please have your donations on the first floor or ideally outside or in the garage on the pickup day. If there is no elevator we are not able to move your donated furniture from basements and/or upper floors.
If donating electric appliances, i.e. TV, microwave, toaster oven, toasters, coffee pots, etc. please make sure they are clean and in working order.
We cannot accept mattresses and box springs, sofa sleepers, reclining sofas or reclining love seats. Sofas cannot exceed 84". We are currently not accepting
If we do take the furniture, it must be on a main level for our volunteers to move. Just a few things on the upholstered furniture
We can always use monetary donations. Cash donations can be given for specific needs if donor desires (beds, gas, warehouse rent, etc.) Unspecified cash donations will be split by using 40% for new bed purchases and the remainder for general operating expenses and occasionally for special purchases. I.E.: we are currently in need money for new beds. We have no payroll, so 100% of your donation is used for the purpose of providing our "veterans in need" with household furnishings.
After serving 15 veterans in August we have run out of kitchen/dining room tables and coffee tables; we are short on kitchen chairs also. Please pass the word that we need donations. Thank you.
