They need help with food, water, health and safety supplies. Please consider donating only these essential items listed using curbside drop off boxes located in the parking lots of 703 W. Liberty, Wheaton, 60187. Drop off hours are Monday-Friday 8:00am - 8:00pm and Saturday-Sunday 8:00am-4:00pm. Please email me if you have items, and I will safely pick them up from outside your home and deliver them to DuPage PADS.
