Donate

Our greatest needs right now are gift cards to distribute to our friends experiencing homelessness. These could include locally-owned downtown restaurants that allow people to get out of the elements and give them the dignity of being a paying customer, Walgreens or CVS to help people pay for co-pays and purchase necessities, bus passes, or gas cards. Gift cards can be mailed to PO Box 2399, Madison, WI 53701 or email inventory@friendsofthestatestreetfamily to arrange a drop off or pick up.
