I have posted in the past regarding the help offered by We Do Feet, an organization in Hudson which serves the entire St. Croix Valley area in Wisconsin and Minnesota. If you have furniture or appliances you wish to donate to this worthy organization, they have a new phone number: 715-781-0622.
You will find more information on the group and what items they accept for donation. They are able to pick up larger items, or you can arrange a time to drop them by the warehouse yourself. Aside from furniture and appliances, cash donations and donations of gently used or new mattress pads and sheet sets/bedding are also greatly needed. These smaller items can be dropped by Trinity Lutheran Church (either campus) in Hudson during their regular office or service hours.
Thanks to all of you who have donated furniture in the past; I know several of my clients have given items they no longer needed after our redecorating projects! Please pass this information on to friends and family you know who may have items they wish to donate. All the donations are so appreciated – especially by those in our area who receive the assistance.
I know I have posted on this before, but with the economy the way it is the need is especially great right now. Families are looking for clean used furniture, working home appliances and help with other basic needs. A local organization, We Do Feet, has been helping local families with these needs for several years.
If you have furniture that is in good repair and no longer needed, please consider donating to We Do Feet. They now have a new website dedicated to their work, which offers more information on what they will accept, how to contact them if you have a need and how to volunteer with the organization. Thanks for considering a donation to a great group!
As everyone knows, the economy has taken its toll on families in our area. It is especially hard during the holidays, as people struggle to make ends meet. A local ministry run by Trinity Lutheran Church in Hudson, called We Do Feet, collects furniture to distribute to families in need. If you have an old sofa, chair, bed, mattress or dresser taking up space in your home, consider making a year-end donation to We Do Feet. You can find more information, including contact info, at the Trinity website. By contacting the church, you can arrange for pick-up or drop-off of your items. Thanks for your consideration – all donations are truly appreciated.

Has your basement become something of a furniture graveyard? Have you inherited more furniture than you can fit into your house? Did you recently purchase new furniture? I am often asked where my clients can donate their pre-loved furniture. Thankfully, there is a local non-profit called We Do Feet! They are a ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church in Hudson, WI, and they have a warehouse to store and distribute used furniture to people in need within the St. Croix River Valley area. Furniture is needed by people just coming out of shelters, abuse victims setting up a new home or apartment and current or new area residents in need. As you can imagine, the need is even greater in these ecomonic times! If you have a piece of gently used furniture taking up space in your home, please contact Trinity Lutheran Church at 715/386.9313. They will put you in touch with We Do Feet, and they will arrange for pick-up or drop-off of your donated pieces. They are willing to take on just about any type of furniture in usable condition – the only things they cannot accept are king-sized mattresses, sleeper sofas or appliances. Especially needed are mattresses and sofas. Give that old furniture a new home – there are many in the St. Croix River valley who will thank you!
