What is Basics for Local Kids?

Basics for Local Kids Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501c3, charity organization based out of Ellsworth, WI. Since 2010, we have been helping keep local kids warm during cold Wisconsin winters.

We believe that offering kids new/gently used, warm coats, snow pants, boots, hats, and gloves gives them an opportunity to endure the weather, stay active outside, and feel good about themselves with items that fit.

Kids in living in Pierce or St. Croix counties in western Wisconsin ages infant - 18 years old and in need of winter-wear are welcome to receive items via the online request form.
