We appreciate the generosity of supporters who seek to donate items to help our clients. Unfortunately, the cost to store or dispose of items and the space they require often diverts resources away from our clients. Therefore, in the interest of making the best use of our time and office space, Pillars is no longer able to accept donated items (including toiletries, clothing, furniture, paper goods, etc.
What We Can Accept
Pillars is actively seeking monetary donations as well as gift cards. Gift cards (from places like Jewel, Target, or Walmart) can be used to purchase items that our clients need.

Constance Morris House, our domestic violence shelter, may be able to accept some items. Please call the Pillars Advancement Team at 708.745.5277 to see if your item can be accepted (do not automatically drop off your item without calling first as we cannot accept walk-ins).
