Emergency Furniture & Basic Needs Bank

People Helping People make their houses feel like home


We recycle gently used, donated furniture and housewares to families transitioning out of shelters, homelessness, or doing their best to overcome life's challenges. Every week, those who have extra belongings donate, and every week, those who are in need seek assistance. We’re glad to be able to bring the two together.

Those needing assistance with household goods are required to bring:

  1. Proof of Marathon County Residency
  2. Photo ID
  3. Appropriate transportation for items

Check our calendar of events for holiday and other closures. If the weather is severe, please call our office (715-845-1966) to confirm we are open.
