Hope House accepts used cell phones, smartphones, iPods, and iPads as we send them to a recycling center to later be used as 911 cell phones and receive a cash donation.
Please note that at this time we are not accepting stuffed animals/plush toys, used toys, used books, clothes (except for new sweat pants and sweat shirts, socks, and underwear), shoes, TVs, bar soap, furniture, or travel-size bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, or lotion. We encourage those looking to donate travel-size items to donate them to the Backpack Project.
The Backpack Project strives to provide Baraboo School District students who are financially challenged to enter the school doors on the first day "just like everyone else" and to show these children the community supports and encourages them to learn and do their best. Becky Hovde is the contact, and she can be reached at 608-963-8230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please call us at 608-356-9123 if you are interested in donating items other than what is listed below to see if we have a current need for them.
