Support Basics for Local Kids

Donate Winter Wear

Kids rely on your donation of new and gently used coats, snow pants, boots, and water-resistant gloves to help them stay warm and active this winter. All sizes needed from newborn through adult (for teens).

We have many drop off locations in Pierce & St. Croix counties. Check back for updates.
(We are looking for additional collection sites, especially in Baldwin, Elmwood, Plum City, and Spring Valley. Please call 715.821.1623 if interested. We will supply bin and sign.)
