Donate Tangible Goods

Our needs are always changing. We have a drop box available for smaller items and clothes. It is located at 89 1/2 Grant St Crystal Lake. *

We generally accept gently used baby, child and youth size clothing. It is extremely helpful if you are able to have the clothing washed in advance.
We also accept gently used baby gear. We have no way to wash the donated items so we ask that you only donate clean items.

If you have any items you would like to donate that are too large for our drop box OR if you have items you’d like to see if we can use, please send a message to

*To find our drop box, go to 89 Grant St Crystal Lake (Photography studio). If you look to the immediate left of the front door, you’ll see a small alley. Look down that alley and you’ll see our big blue drop box.
