McHenry East is at 1012 N. Green St., McHenry. Crystal Lake Central is at 45 W. Franklin St., Crystal Lake.

Each location is accepting donations for Helping Paws, Brave Hearts Therapeutic Riding and Educational Center, Catholic Charities, Pioneer Center, Home of the Sparrow, Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association, Friendship House and St. Vincent de Paul Society.
