Supplies Needed for August

This month we are in need of a variety of clothing items for adults in our program. Jeans, undershirts, and underwear top the list. Types and sizes can be found in the list below. We also need pots and pans for guests in our housing program. Our kitchen needs this month are pretty simple – bottled water and 33 gallon garbage bags. Last but not least, we are still in need of diapers for the kiddos in our Family Services Program. Sizes 5 and 6 are in highest demand.

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 Brooke. She can be reached by phone or email; 815-964-4105 ext. 203 cpengagement@carpentersplace.org. Donations by mail are always welcome and accepted at any time.
