Current Needs for May

Each month we compile a list of our most urgently needed items. Our list for the month of May includes items like backpack, personal hygiene items, and a few specific needs for kids in our Family Services Program. We are grateful for your support fulfilling these basic needs.

Due to Covid-19, we need to be more mindful of our in-person visitors. If you plan to drop off donation items in person, we ask that you please coordinate in advance with Patti. She can be reached by phone or email; 815-964-4105 ext. 216 cpengagement@carpentersplace.org. Donations by mail are always welcome and accepted at any time.

Adding ‘smile’ brings you to AmazonSmile. It is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. We hope you’ll choose Carpenter’s Place during the set-up process. The best part is, you can use your existing Amazon account. Super seamless!
