Illinois Valley PADS shelters are consolidating resources during the coronavirus spread.
The Peru location is operational 24/7. Ottawa clients and case managers temporarily have moved to the Peru facility to allow the organization to focus on the safety of their clients.
PADS in Peru is accepting food donations, gift cards and monetary donations. The organization suggests coordinating a meal or buying cards for local restaurants, which, PADS points out, helps the shelter and local businesses.
You can leave any donations at the front door, without coming into contact. Or you can call PADS at 224-30-47.
