Illinois AMVETS offers drop-off locations in the Chicago area for donations of household goods and clothing. Attendants will assist you with your donations at each location, so please see the list for the drop-off site near you. In order for a donor to receive a tax receipt they must go to the plaza site when an attendant is on duty and sign the log book. Thank you and if you have any questions please call 708-388-7800.

If your business or organization is interested in hosting a drop-off site, please contact us by emailing Keith at keith@ilamvets.org. For additional information, click here
