Donate Materials

The PlayHouse is always in need of recyclables and other materials. Here is more information about our current needs. Thank you!

Donate Recyclables

The PlayHouse welcomes in-kind donations of materials and services, including safe, clean, non-toxic manufacturing scraps and household recyclables. Here is a list of some of the things we are looking for, but we take anything clean that you might throw out or recycle that could become art!

Have something to donate but not sure if we'll take it? Email us at [email protected], or call Adrienne at 309-323-6894.
