Mattoon Area P.A.D.S.
Public Action to Deliver Shelter



General Needs:

Non-Perishable food items are always welcome. Also we are always in need of several household items such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, paper towels, plastic silverware and personal hygiene supplies for both men and women.  Items can be dropped off on weekdays during the business hours of 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.  Donations can also be accepted after 6:00 p.m. when volunteers and night staff are here.  See the sidebar on the top right for an updated list of our current needs.  



Monetary Donations:

PADS is only partially supported through state funding. We rely on the generous contributions of our community to truly make a difference in the lives of those in need. Monetary donations help PADS get needed supplies, pay staff, and maintain our facility. Contributions can be made by check to “Mattoon Area PADS” or if you would like to give online or by credit/debit card.
