Families, Children Among those in Need at Illinois Valley Shelters

Posted by wlpo on December 9, 2016

When you think about someone without a home, you probably think about an individual, not a family.

However, there are some families right here in the Illinois Valley that rely on the services of shelters, such as PADS. As a result, according to Jacqueline from Peru PADS, there are some 25 children who are also having to rely on the services of homeless shelters.

Jacqueline says homelessness is a big problem, but even little contributions help a number of needs the shelters have. She went on to say items like bottled water are especially helpful, because it is a need of everyone staying at the shelter. They’re also in need of things like foam and liquid hand soap, and non-alcoholic decongestants and sinus medications.

You can drop off donations weekdays between 7:00 and 3:00. If you don’t want to do the shopping, they’ll also accept gift cards.
