Share Your Items

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? Donate your gently used items or consider running a drive at your church or office for new items to share.

How to Donate Items

Large Items or Quantities

Drop-offs of large furniture or large quantities of items require an appointment. Please email us at to schedule. Pictures of large or unusual items are also helpful to allow our team to confirm that they will be a benefit to the ministry.

Small Items

Donations of smaller items, such as clothing, housewares, or small furniture, are always welcome to be dropped off at our warehouse in Waukegan. Volunteers are available Monday – Thursday 9am-1pm (closed on Fridays). Please do not leave items unattended at the door.

Furniture Pick-up

Schedule a pick-up of your larger items by volunteers from our churches (typically on Saturday mornings). Check if you are in our service area here. Contact or call 847.782.8630 x212

Care to donate new items?

Shop your favorite retailer or check out our Amazon list for our Household Starter Kit needs. Consider running a drive at your church or office too!

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!
