Got “Stuff” to Donate?

posted by Katie Slade on Friday, November 22, 2013

We are so appreciative that our friends in the community think of us when they no longer need items around their home (clothing/furnishings/etc.).

While the persons we serve do have many needs, regrettably the majority of the generous items we receive don’t immediately match up with a specific need.

For example, we often get bags of great clothing and we may know of a person who has a clothing need, but unfortunately the size and style doesn’t match the person in need.

For a while now, we have been doing our best to store these items until a need arose. Unfortunately, we are just plain out of space.

We’ve come up with a new solution we hope you’ll agree is a win-win all around. Here’s how your "stuff’ can still benefit the persons served by EPI....

1. Look to our EPI online wish list first.

We will continue to accept items that are found on our wish list (visit us online - we’re continuously updating the list to reflect our most current needs,

2. Take it to EPI’s account at Stuff, Etc.

If it’s not on our wish list, make arrangements to bring it to Stuff, Etc. in Waterloo. Simply tell them the account is under Exceptional Persons, Inc. (EPI).

When your items sell, EPI will get 50% of the proceeds. Those proceeds will be passed on to the individuals we serve to meet specific needs in the form of vouchers to shop at Stuff.

We’re really excited about this opportunity for the persons we support to have the ability to shop for and choose items that match their preferences.

The ability to choose is a gift we know the individuals we support will certainly enjoy. Thank you in advance for your support!
