Charitable contributions and Giving
It has never been as easy to give back! Elect to send the proceeds of your consignment to one of our 501(c)3 organizations and we'll take care of the rest. We will even send you a tax receipt. We donate unaccepted and unsold items (with zero monetary benefit or tax deduction) to organizations that help children in need. Here are our partners:
Cradles to Crayons is a community-powered organization located in West Conshohocken, PA. The mission of Cradles to Crayons is to provide children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. Cradles to Crayons supplies these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
The deceptively simple Cradles to Crayons model collects new and gently-used children’s items from communities that have excess and, with the help of approximately 1,700 volunteers each month, distributes these items to children living in low income and homeless situations in the Philadelphia region
The Baby Bureau is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that donates gently used and new baby clothing to babies in need. We donate “Baby Bundles” of clothing to social service providers that determine the need of the new mom and baby. Each “Baby Bundle” includes 30 seasonally appropriate outfits, onesies, sleepers, a hat, a bib, socks and shoes. We need sizes 0- 12/18 months on an ongoing basis. We recently started adding baby board books to our bundles because it is never to early to start reading to your baby.
We work with our local hospitals, shelters, food banks, health department and any social service provider that assists new moms in need. We believe in Recycle, Reuse, Regive the Love…
A Love for Life is a 501(c) non-profit organization founded in honor of Newtown, PA neighbor Kevin Edmonds and his sister Nora. Both were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at age 49 and died at age 51.
A Love for Life is dedicated to raising funds for pancreatic cancer research. The average survival rate for stage IV pancreatic cancer is a little over 6 months. We want to help change that number. We are honored to be partnering with the Abramson Cancer Center at The University of Pennsylvania. 100% of the money that we raise will fund cutting edge research here in Philadelphia.
We celebrate Life & Friendship & Adventure. Join us. Shop these items and 40% of the purchase price will be donated to A Love for Life.
The Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that has been meeting the needs of individuals and families whose incomes fall below the Federal Government Poverty Guidelines.
The Cupboard was founded by Mattie N. Dixon, a longtime resident of Ambler and a true visionary. In 1973, in response to learning that people in her community were going hungry, she started serving families out of her basement. She also had several other homes for her service, Zion Baptist Church, Church of the Brethren, 57 Butler Ave. In 2004, Community Cupboard relocated to current address, 150 North Main Street.
Goodwill was founded in 1902 in Boston by Rev. Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist minister and early social innovator. Helms collected used household goods and clothing in wealthier areas of the city, then trained and hired those who were poor to mend and repair the used goods. The goods were then resold or were given to the people who repaired them. The system worked, and the Goodwill philosophy of “a hand up, not a hand out” was born.
Goodwill® strives to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by helping people reach their full potential through education, skills training and the power of work.
