What type of items does Love INC need?

The same things you needed to start your first apartment. All items must be in good, usable condition—would you use them in your home? Items outside of the basic needs for our struggling neighbors will be provided to our Loved Twice Thrift Boutique to financially support the ministry.

How to Donate

  • Contact us at [email protected] or call 847.782.8630 x212 to make arrangements for pick up or drop off.
  • Pick-ups for furniture are made by our volunteers, typically on Saturday mornings, by appointment. Check if you are in our area here.
  • Donations are always welcome to be dropped off at our warehouse in Waukegan Monday – Friday by appointment.
  • Email pictures of large or unusual items to see if they will be a benefit to the ministry.

Do you like to garage sale or bargain shop?

Print our handy Furniture/Household wallet card. Carry one with you and share the rest with your friends!
