In-Kind Donated Items Needed

Bus Tokens.  People transitioning to stable life often need to interview or get to jobs with public transportation. The gift of some bus tokens makes the necessary task of getting to places of employment less of a financial strain for people when trying to get back on their feet after incarceration. To donate please contact Anne at 715-848-4044 or opendoor319@gmail.com.

Books. Gently used or new children’s books are needed to fill the Ready to Read Bookshelves located around the community where families and children can access books for free. To donate please contact Jacquelyn at 715-298-5723 or jsirianni@unitedwaymc.org.

Ladders. A 6-8 foot solid stepladder (wood or fiberglass) and an extension ladder would be a great help for grounds crew that maintains the gardens! To donate contact Vickie at 715-261-6309 or vickie.richmondhawkins@uwc.edu.

Timberwolf Table is located on the 4th floor of the Center for Health Sciences and is open to any current NTC student in need.  Hours are:

  • Mondays 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
  • Tuesdays 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
  • Fridays 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Current NTC students can visit Timberwolf Table once a week and self-select a number of items from several categories including breakfast, fruits and vegetables, protein, pasta and soup, and miscellaneous.  The intent is to provide food for a day, although many food items (such as jars of peanut butter and boxes of cereal) will last much longer than a day.

If you are in need, please stop by.  If you know someone who is in need, please share this information.  Thank you for your support!
