MADISON, Wis. -- People trying to best the end of the year for tax purposes were among the many racing to local charity donation sites on Wednesday.
Staff at various donation sites said the cars have been lining up to drop off items, and said the sooner people show up the better.
At Goodwill Industries of South Central Wisconsin's most popular site off Verona Road, the cars were lined up a dozen deep. There they can drive into a garage, drop off their donations, and collect a receipt all in a matter of minutes.
Donors were loaded down with all kinds of stuff Wednesday, ready to give for all kinds of reasons.
'I'm actually trying to unload some toys to make room for new stash,' said one area mother."
