Illinois Veterans Home Manteno

Manteno remains in “Lock Down” mode so please hold onto your donations for now. Thank You.

Illinois Veterans Home-Mateno is home to approximately 400 elderly Veterans. Many of these Veterans have no living relatives,  so WE are their only family. They proudly served in the United States Armed Forces. They love knowing that YOU appreciate their service.  Please continue to donate new, unopened items and food products [from the list provided]. All donations can be placed in the footlocker conveniently located at the North entrance of the Canteen.  Thank You!!!
