Western Dairyland operates Cents & Sensibility, a non-profit thrift store that offers a rotating stock of men's, women's and children's clothing, along with shoes, housewares, books, toys, jewelry and accessories. New merchandise donated by community members arrives at the store every week, and 100 percent of sales helps Western Dairyland in assisting less-fortunate families residing in Buffalo, Eau Claire, Jackson and Trempealeau counties.

The mission of Cents & Sensibility is to provide clothing and housewares at little or no cost for those in need. Every year, Cents & Sensibility provides clothing, blankets and housewares at no charge to hundreds of local families.

Donate your lightly worn clothing, housewares, dishes, small appliances, DVDs, CDs, video games, books, shoes, boots, holiday items, bed & bath items, blankets, sheets, towels and more. Please note - we are unable to accept large appliances and furniture.

Your donations remain local, and 100 percent of sales helps Western Dairyland in assisting less-fortunate families in our communities. Call us at 715-985-3301 for more information.
