Due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the Chicago-land area as well as advice from the CDC and WHO, Fox Valley Hands of Hope has decided to suspend our Lending Closet Services until further notice.

If you currently have a Lending Closet item that was due in March, April, or May, please be advised that this item will automatically be extended. We will continue to update this page, so check back frequently for new dates!
