Gently Used Items Wishlist

Growing Power welcomes donations of gently used items or equipment, donations of this kind will free up funds to use toward our charitable programs, such as our signature Youth Corps which serves over 350 teens annually, Farmers for Chicago, or our fast evolving Farm-to-School program. Investing with Growing Power is an investment in the Milwaukee community. We believe “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” and each contribution or donation will have a ripple effect that will touch on thousands of food-insecure children and families as we continuously keep up our year-round food production and formalize our educational programs.

Our belief system in our community is deeply rooted, and we invite you to think of us and consider fulfilling one of our wish list items found below.
