Do you have "stuff" to donate?

posted by Katie Slade on Thursday, March 8, 2018

Spring is in the air and, if you’re anything like me, that means it’s time clean out the closets and other areas of the house to get rid of the things we don’t need!  It feels so good to fill bags of items we no longer have a need for, and it feels even better to donate them to benefit people in need.  That’s where EPI comes in!

Did you know that EPI has an account at Stuff, Etc. Quality Consignment in Waterloo and your donations can support the individuals we serve?!

While the individuals we serve do have many needs and we greatly appreciate donated items, the majority of the items we receive don’t immediately match up with the specific needs of the individuals we serve.  Unfortunately, we simply don’t have the space to accept items that don’t have an immediate home.  Donating to Stuff, Etc. is the perfect solution!  Here's how it works:

  • Drop off your donations (clothes, furniture, household items, etc.) to Stuff, Etc. in Waterloo and let them know that you’d like the proceeds to go to Exceptional Persons, Inc.’s account - no appointment necessary! 
  • When your items sell, EPI will receive 50% of the proceeds.  The proceeds are then passed on to the individuals we serve in the form of vouchers to shop for items that match their specific needs - like cookware or an outfit for a job interview. 

We are so excited about this opportunity for the individuals we support to have the ability to shop for and choose items that match their preferences.  The ability to choose is an extremely valuable gift.  So, as you’re purging through your house this spring, consider donating your items to Stuff, Etc. to benefit the persons served by EPI!

Thank you for your generosity and happy spring!
