Urgent Needs for September
Each month we compile a list of our most-requested and most-urgently needed items. The list of needs for September ranges from new jeans to hot sauce! You can view the complete list of needs below. We thank you in advance for helping us fulfill these needs for our homeless guests and families in crisis.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations by mail are always welcome and accepted at any time.

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.
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.
