Support Our Thrift Stores

Our Thrift Stores are the heart of the Joliet Diocesan Council. We need contributions of merchandise for our stores and if you can donate any merchandise, see our Donate Clothing and Furniture web page. If you like to buy new mattresses at cost or inexpensive slightly used merchandise, please visit us at any of our six stores that are described in our Thrift Stores Location web page.

Support Our Car Program

The Joliet Diocesan Council has a Car Program to provide transportation for our needy neighbors to get to and from their jobs. If you have a car that you no longer need, regardless of the condition, visit our Donate Vehicles web page.
