February Guest Needs

This month our most urgently needed items are small personal care products — things like travel size shampoo & conditioner, chapstick, and Q tips. The complete list of needs can be found below. We thank you in advance for helping us with these needs. Our guests are grateful for your kindness and generosity.

To limit the risk of exposure to our guests and staff 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 PattiF@carpentersplace.org.

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!
