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 through the end of March.

Our mission remains to provide compassionate guidance and support for the grieving. In so doing, we are committed to ensuring the overall health and wellness of our clients, volunteers, and staff. We are thankful for the cooperation and understanding of our community members and encourage everyone to maintain healthy practices suggested by the CDC.

If you currently have a Lending Closet item that is due in March, please be advised that this item will automatically be extended to the first week of April.

Please stay safe and healthy during this time of many unknowns. Tending to both your physical and mental health can play a huge part in curbing the progression of this virus.
