For God’s Sake: Necessary Laundry Appliances, Pasta and Preserves | Local News

The For Goodness’ Sake program, administered by La Crosse County, provides donated household items to those in need. Phone numbers listed are for local agency contacts, not the person in need. This week’s needs include:

  • A woman with a disability would benefit from a treadmill due to difficulty getting out of her home. Call Michel at 608-518-0306.
  • The family of a medically fragile baby needs a working electric washer and dryer. Call Christine at 608-386-3781.
  • The recently relocated person needs a working washer and dryer. Call Melissa at 608-78-9215.
  • The Hunger Taskforce Food Bank needs pasta and gravy, rice and canned fruit. Drop off items 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at 1240 Clinton St., La Crosse, or call 608-793-1003.

The exchange accepts working and broken vacuum cleaners, as a member of the community is able to repair donations. You also need microwaves, toasters, toaster ovens, slow cookers and electrical skills, as well as new pillows and lightly used queen bed linens, mattresses or box springs in twin, full and queen sizes. Please call 608-301-5345 or email [email protected]. For more information, visit
