March Guest Needs

Spring is near! The temps are rising and we are eager for the changing seasons. Our needs list this month is short and sweet, and focuses mostly on kitchen items that our homeless guests use while spending time in our Day Room.

If you plan to drop off donation items in-person, we ask that you please coordinate in advance with Michelle S. She can be reached by phone or email; 815-964-4105 ext. 203; CPengagement@carpentersplace.org

Needs

  • Paper towels
  • 33 gal trash bags
  • Flavored drink mixes
  • Non-dairy coffee creamer packet
  • Sugar Packets
  • Hot Sauce (individual packet or bottle)

Mailing donations directly to CP is always a great option. Or, you can drop off the items in-person. Details for both options can be found below.

ONLINE

Amazon is a popular and effective way for us to receive in-kind donations. If you shop on Amazon, we have a couple tips for the next time you buy.

USE: smile.amazon.com
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!

CHOOSE: gift option at check-out
Choosing ‘gift option’ at check-out let’s us know who sent the package. Using this option to ship directly to Carpenter’s Place allows us to know who to thank for the generous donation!
