Information Controls Gives to Miss Carly’s
Each year, Information Controls selects a special local charity to promote giving and the holiday spirit. We have chosen Miss Carly’s this year! We will be collecting monetary gifts as well as new or gently used items for their organization until November 30th.
There are three ways to give:
- Choose our Venmo for a secure, charitable gift to Miss Carly’s. Both the QR and user are below. Please note! Information Controls will match all monetary gifts up to a total $1000 – so it’s like giving twice!
- Drop your new and gently used items off at the Information Controls office, located at 1358 Fourth Avenue in Rockford. Please call before dropping as our building is secured and we will need to greet you for entry. Call 815-484-2100.
- We will pick up your monetary or physical contribution. Please call the office or you can text or call 815-243-2660.

About Miss Carly’s
We are a family in Rockford, Illinois that started feeding people on the streets extra portions we cooked at meal times. Sharing meals with those in need has grown our family to over 200 people who exist in the margins. We are a lighthouse for the lost.
