Monetary Donations

The services at Vida directly impact the lives of the women, men and children we serve in the Fox Valley and surrounding communities. All of our services are free of charge. That means we are completely dependent upon the generosity of our donors to open our door every morning. 

Vida greatly appreciates planned giving and all corporate and individual gifts of time, talent or treasure. We especially appreciate regular giving by means of a monthly or quarterly pledge. This type of giving will allow us to budget appropriately and avoid disruptions in our service. A reoccurring payment plan can be easily set up through your bank. One-time donations can be accomplished by clicking the donate button.

Material Donations

We are in need of new and gently used baby and toddler clothing sizes newborn through 5T, maternity clothing and baby equipment. We are completely dependent upon the generosity of individuals, groups and businesses to keep our shelves stocked. Please bring your items in anytime from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays.

We do not offer donation pick up at this time. However, we do have staff members to help unload and receive your items when you come during our donation drop off hours. Please park behind our building located at the corner of Alvin and Wisconsin Ave. in Appleton. Once inside the building, go to Vida’s central reception area which is located on your left, across from Vida Support Services. Tax donation slips are available upon request. Please call ahead for large donations to insure staff availability. Staff are generally available to give short tours of our store if you would like additional information about who we are and what we do to serve the community.
