Donations of furniture, household items,  food

We need furniture, household and kitchen items, clothing and non-perishable food to help homeless and at-risk veterans and their families who are moving into their first apartments or rooms. Most of them have nothing, and no resources to buy anything.  Your donation can change their lives.

Normal Business Hours

The MHVI Bunker at 7222 W. Fond du Lac Ave. is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday for donation drop-offs.  Or you can call us at 414-763-5596 to arrange a time.  If you need a pickup, please click the link below.

We do pickups and deliveries between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and return phone calls during business hours.,

We are closed on Sunday and Monday.

The donations you make are life-changing.

Your sofa or bed  may mean a child doesn't have to sleep on the floor.  A desk gives a child a place to study.  One veteran we helped recently with a kitchen table told us, "You gave me a place to eat meals with my daughter."

A blender, toaster, and even pots and pans helps veterans and their families to prepare better meals.

Please donate items in good condition. A good rule of thumb: Ask yourself if this is something you would give to a member of your family. If not, it is probably not suitable to donate.

We especially need  end tables and kitchen tables and chairs right now.   We can always use sheets, towels, washcloths. dishes, cups, glasses, and pots and pans.

Not accepting: We are not accepting TVs, entertainment centers, appliances, wheel chairs, bookcases, desks, pull-out couches or large couches over 6 ft. Large furniture of any kind is difficult for our mission, as the majority of our veterans are going into efficiencies or small apartments. We do not need toiletries at the present time, thanks to some recent collection drives.

Request a donation pickup using the form below. We'll get in touch to schedule a convenient  date and time. Thanks!
