Castaways is currently closed. Our volunteers are working hard to move to our new location 1901 Milton Ave., Janesville (formerly Payless Shoes). Opening date coming soon!

Location Overview

Our resale shop in Janesville opened in 1982 and is run entirely by members of the Mercyhealth Association of Volunteers. Money raised at Castaways is used to fund Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center–Janesville equipment purchases, scholarships, and contributions to the Wigs for Patients program and the House of Mercy Homeless Center.


We gladly accept donations of new and gently used clothing, furniture, gift items, magazines, seasonal décor and household goods. Items must be clean, and in good to excellent condition

Please drop off items at the front counter or inside the back door during store hours. Do not leave items outside.


People with a friendly personality, cash handling experience, retail display, merchandising and customer service skills are welcome to join our team. To inquire about current opportunities, call (608) 756-6739.
