Donate Goods & Services
Donations of goods or services help make life easier for families each day.
From simple items like paper towels and toiletries from our House wish lists to larger items from stoves and washers to landscaping or technology services, your in-kind gift helps provide families with everything they need to feel at home.
What We Take
We kindly accept new, unused, recently purchased, and unexpired items in their original packaging. We greatly appreciate environmentally friendly products.
What We Can’t Take
We cannot accept used or opened items, donations of used furniture, used books, used toys (games, videos, etc.), or used stuffed toys.
Wish List Items
In addition to basic supplies from our wish lists, our Houses also need larger items and services to keep things running smoothly for families.
If you would like to donate an item from this list or if you have a service you would like to donate, please contact:
Jack Gilhooly, Development Manager
[email protected] or 630-354-7739
Our top four most-needed large items include:
- Brand new washers and dryers (contact us for additional requirements)
- New, unused bagless vacuums
- Video game consoles and controllers (Switch, Sony Playstation 4, or Microsoft Xbox One X)
- Transit van for shuttle service for families
Dropping Off Donations
In order to simplify your donation process, we encourage you to call the location where you plan to donate at least one day before your planned drop-off. For larger donations, please call a few days in advance.
