What We Accept & Don't
Ask yourself: "Would I give this to my best friend?"

 

  • We accept gently used items. They must be clean, fully functioning and in good condition free of rips, stains, odors and pet hair.

  • Unsure of what we accept? E-mail us a picture and we will get back to you.

  • We have the right to refuse items that don't meet our quality standards.

  • Need a donation receipt? Download the Item Donation Receipt

 

  •  To donate small items please bring them to the front entry at 1009 4th St S. Monday/Wednesday 1-3 & Tuesday/Thursday 1-4 

  • For large item donations such as couches, dressers, tables and mattresses please e-mail us with pictures and dimensions of each item.

  • We aren’t always able to accept large items due to minimal storage space, weight and/or size. Please email pictures to insure we have room and it fits into our guidelines.

  • If you have no way of transporting large items we will work with you to arrange a pick-up time. (LaCrosse, Onalaska and the city of LaCresent)

  • We have a stellar group of volunteers who deliver the large items to our clients on Tuesday and Thursday mornings 8:30-11:00 and we will fit your large pick-up items within that schedule as best we can.

  • For the service of retrieving your large furniture donations we ask for a minimum donation to theExchange of $10-$20.

  • If possible, please have your items in an easily accessible area such as the garage or main floor entrance away from stairs and tight turns.
