Join Us in Impacting Chicago and the World!

Come join our team at our resale shop! We are an upscale resale shop that collects donations of clothing and household goods for resale in our shop. Our net profits are sent directly to our six international Partners around the world and one in Chicago, all of whom are working with the extreme poor. Our resale shop is located in Rolling Meadows, IL. We need your help in sorting and processing clothing and household donations, serving as front desk cashier and assisting our customers on the sales floor and keeping our sales floor in order and fully stocked.

We would also love your help with reaching out to the community and helping us develop relationships with local churches, community groups, retailers and other people who will work with our Executive Director to expand our exposure, bring in more customers and help us increase our donation base and volunteer base. In addition, if you enjoy grassroots fundraising, social media,hosting special events and outside sales, website development, bookkeeping, data entry, volunteer recruitment and being an advocate for us in the Northwest Suburban Chicago area, please give us a call. We are directly connected to our six Partners around the world (and one in Chicago) and we would love for you to get to know them as well.

Our shop is small but lively and very "customer-friendly." You can impact the lives of children, families and entire communities overseas by joining us here- in our shop in Rolling Meadows!
