Clothing Donation Helps Keep Wisconsinites Warm this Winter

The Volunteer Center of Racine County, Inc, a nonprofit organization located in Racine County, Wisconsin, recently received and distributed 91 boxes of donated clothing  to Wisconsin residents in need this winter. The clothes were donated from the Red Cliff community, thanks to the efforts of a group of 15 teenagers, who “had seen families on the street with signs asking for money to buy clothing and food” and wanted to help.  (Lee B.

Several local agencies, including Bethany, St. Vincent DePaul, Family Literacy and Love, Inc. of Burlington were able to pick up these boxes from the Volunteer Center of Racine County to distribute throughout their community. The donation, transportation and distribution were all processed on the Wisconsin portal of the National Donation Management Network, powered by the Aidmatrix Network. “The agencies picking up clothing were most appreciative. Thank you to all that helped make this a success,” stated David Voss, Outreach Coordinator for the Volunteer Center of Racine County, Inc. The Volunteer Center of Racine County serves children, youth, adults, and seniors who are keenly interested in service and volunteering.
