The Giving Place
113 N. Bourne St.
Tolono, IL 61880
The Giving Place is our primary local mission. The Giving Place is a needs-based food pantry and clothing closet that serves the Unity (Unit 7) School District. Clients are asked to bring IDs to show proof of residency in Unit 7 and are asked to confirm that their household falls within 150% of the federal poverty level. We are a choice-pantry that provides non-perishable foods. Clients may come to receive food and clothing once a month, on any Wednesday of the month.
The Giving Place is open every Wednesday from 4-6pm for distribution and to accept donations. We accept non-perishable food items and gently-used, in-season clothing of all sizes. We also accept paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, facial tissues) and diapers.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Children who want to volunteer should be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please call the church office or one of the numbers on the Facebook page for more information. We encourage you to follow “The Giving Place” on Facebook for all the latest news.
During the coronavirus pandemic, The Giving Place has changed its normal operations. Food is pre-packed and brought out to clients (who remain in their vehicles). After getting food, clients who need clothing, will be asked to enter the clothing area via the back door of The Giving Place. There are chairs in the back room to sit in as you wait.
- Only 1 person per family is allowed in at a time, so have someone to watch children or come alone those days. No children will be allowed inside.
- There will be a maximum of 2 people at a time in the Clothing Room.
- There is a 10 minute time limit to select clothes.
