CFPA accepts non-monetary and in-kind donations to help support our clients and our client services.
We are proud to work with our local community to provide our clients with everything they might need while they seek our services and stay with us in shelter. From food drives to diaper donations to new household goods, we will happily work with you to help meet our clients’ needs. We thrive on donations and are grateful for your interest in helping.
For questions about hosting a donation drive or regarding our current most pressing needs, please call Kelly at 309-691-0551.

Furniture and Large Item Donations
Furniture and other large items are accepted with prior approval from CFPA.
