In-Kind Donations 

CCH has a limited capacity to accept in-kind donations (food, clothing, care packages, etc.). We recommend getting in touch with GiveNKind. They connect goods with nonprofits to benefit our community and our environment.  

Furniture and household goods donations can be directed to the Chicago Furniture Bank. They distribute donations to families and individuals transitioning into supportive housing.
