Donating to charity in Madison, WI.

I am moving away from Madison, WI on Saturday. I want to donate a whole bunch of clothes and shoes and things. I can not for the life of me find hours and guidelines online. I often go by a "donation station" while on the bus, and will stop there tomorrow, but it would be nice to find this information so I can just call a taxi and run over with all my donations tomorrow, instead of doing so on Friday.

Can't you just roll up behind St. Vinnie's during business hours and dump the stuff?

Or... if it's decent stuff and you're about 6'2" and wear size 12 shoes, email me. My UW-student brother lives on Doty Street.

noami - heh! I'm 5'6" and wear ten and a halfs. Sorry.

Interrobang - I feel dumb, thanks. I read an article about SVDP a couple years ago and should have remembered them.

*sigh* *sigh*
I lived in Madison for 12 years. I now live in an area of Canada which I loath.
Thanks for making me remember for a moment how great madtown was. I recall once dropping donations off at a Goodwill on University Ave, just beyond the UW, right after the overpass. Nearby a wonderful Asian restaurant.
Okay, I'll stop now...

There's a thrift store on E. Washington (not sure of the exact address) but they might be worth dropping it off at. I'm currently trying to get a job in Madison.

Man I miss Madison, I lived a block away from the St. Vinnies near the Crystal Corner. :(
