Every sale benefits our local charity partners,
including Hope Rescue Mission
Hope Rescue Mission has been a place of refuge, healing, and restoration for the homeless of Berks County, PA since 1894. HRM provides food, clothing and shelter for up to 85 per night. The Mission also opens space for an additional 80-100 per night when Code Blue is called due to extremely cold weather. Programs are offered to help transition from life on the streets to a productive life in society, the Mission’s goal is life restoration.
Plans are underway for Lighthouse, Hope Rescue Mission Women & Children's Shelter. The shelter is designed to fill a specific gap in service within Berks County, allowing homeless moms and school-age children to stay together. In other shelters, teen-age sons are often unable to stay with their mother in the same shelter. LightHouse's design allows families to stay together, and due to its location, will also allow for spouses to at least be on the same property, keeping families united.

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 our Charity Partner. So no matter what, everyone wins!
Notes from a few of our Charity Partners
"Can’t thank you enough for this support."
Thanks so much for the FABULOUS donations! Quality was fantastic!
A special thanks for the shoes! We were completely out of shoe donations when yours came in! Can’t thank you enough for this support.

"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.

"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. :)
