Donate your items at the end of the sale! WE Care - a part of SW Community Action Program is the receipient of the donations. Donating is easy - when creating your tags, just set your profile to default to donate! You also have the ability to override the default should you chose to pick up some items and donate others. You'll be helping area families who will greatly appreciate your gift, and, you have record of the donation for tax purposes. 


WE Care Highlights

A part of Southwestern Community Action Program

When you choose to donate your unsold items, you are helping an organization which has served over 16 counties in Southern Wisconsin since it's inception in March of 2006.

WE CARE was formed a group of volunteers who were concerned about the financial plight of families in Southwestern Wisconsin. Since limited financial resources exist for families in need of clothing, diapers, wipes and other supplies, WE CARE was started specifically for them.
