When The Professionals help you move to a new home, they can also help your new and gently-used items find new homes with local families in need.

The Professionals will pick up your donations at the time of your move and deliver them to the following Chicagoland organizations:

Cradles to Crayons, providing clothing, shoes, select toys and books, to children from birth through age 12, living in low-income and homeless situations.  For information, visit www.cradlestocrayons.org/chicago.

  • Chicago’s Children’s Advocacy Center, helping restore the lives of child victims of sexual and physical abuse.  For information, visit www.chicagocac.org
