In-Kind Donations

 

Each week, over 400 Marathon County families visit The Neighbors' Place for groceries, personal care items, diapers and basic needs items. We need your help to keep the shelves stocked with a variety of items. Hosting a drive is a great way to get involved, promote awareness about community needs, and help a neighbor. It also makes for a fun class or team-building project!

Donations can be dropped off Monday–Friday: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
The Neighbors' Place, 800 Jefferson St. Wausau, WI 54403

The Neighbors' Place is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, and the value of your donation is 100% tax deductible.
