SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY

Two hands hold either side of a small, black paper cut out heart.

Every sale benefits our local charity partners, Joyful Journeys Community Enrichment, A Precious Child, and the Optimist Club

Thanks to our very generous sellers who choose to donate their unsold items, we are able to help Joyful Journeys Community Enrichment and A Precious Child with essentials their clients need twice each year. 


Joyful Journeys Community Enrichment:

Joyful Journeys helps improve lives by providing critical human services like food, clothes, household items, hygiene products, baby items and school supplies. While providing emergency essentials is necessary, it is only a band-aid to a much larger problem. They proactively create impact by providing tutoring and after school support, exercise and nutrition classes, sports and arts programs, financial literacy courses and resume building assistance. They also host community gardens, clean the streets, help struggling families over the holidays and MORE!!!


A Precious Child:

About 250,000 children live below the Colorado Self-Sufficiency Standard in A Precious Child's service area. Children living in poverty are more likely to be in poor health, less likely to graduate high school on time and are more likely to live in poverty as adults. A Precious Child assists children and families facing difficult life challenges such as abuse and neglect, crisis situations and poverty. We work with more than 500 Agency Partners throughout eight counties, including Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas Jefferson and Weld to identify children and families in the most need of our services.


Optimist Club:

Optimist International is a worldwide volunteer organization made up of more than 2,500 local Clubs whose Members work each day to make the future brighter by bringing out the best in children, in their communities, and in themselves. Learn more about its vision, history, mission and program on the Optimist International website.

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SELLERS!

Have you thought about donating?

We highly recommend donating your items each sale—why? We have found that those who choose to reduce items for the half-price sale and also donate unsold items tend to price to sell. That means more items are likely to sell due to the great value shoppers receive during the half-price sale. And if items do not sell, they are donated to Joyful Journeys Community Enrichment and A Precious Child. So no matter what, everyone wins!

Why do sellers donate? Here's what they say.

"I love helping. That's why."

I love that all these items go to help other families. They have plenty of good life left in them so to know they are going to be given to others who can love and use them makes me happy.

• Serina J, JBF Seller, Giver and grandmom of 6

"All the resources stay right here."

I love to donate because items and resources stay right here in our community. They're not shipped off somewhere and sold for scrap. They go to help our neighbors and that's why I like to donate.

• Jordan M, JBF Seller, Giver and dad of 2

"I have kids. I get it."

I realize that we ALL need help from time to time. To think that items my kids have loved can help someone else's littles makes it all worth it. I love to sell my things, sure. BUT knowing that no matter what I'm helping families—that's a great feeling.

• Leslie R, JBF Seller, Giver and mom of 4

"It makes me clean up. I need the nudge."

Full confession—I'm not good at going through the kids' closets to clear stuff out. Each sale season, though, I've developed the practice of going through the closets to sell and then donate if items don't sell. JBF helps to keep me from becoming THAT mom. :)
