By donating new and gently used goods, Junior League of San Antonio, Inc. members and supporters serve the missions of both the Junior League of San Antonio and Goodwill Industries. In return for donations, Goodwill Industries provides JLSA with gift certificates to present to selected community partners; this is similar to the Rummage Sale’s “Community Cash” program. Our community partners distribute the gift cards to appropriate recipients for use at any Goodwill Location.
Goodwill receives all monies raised from the Rummage Sale. This pays them back for their Rummage Sale operations and marketing costs. Also, by hosting the Junior League of San Antonio Rummage Sale, the 9 stores actually see an average jump of 58% in their overall weekend sales. 90 cents of every dollar made at a Goodwill store goes back to the community to support its mission, in return, allowing Goodwill to help more people.
If you are a Junior League of San Antonio, Inc. community partner and you would like to request a gift card for your organization, please fill out the Goodwill Gift Card Application by clicking here.
Unique to the Rummage Sale is Julia’s Attic, the “special, boutique-like” space and brand created by the Junior League of San Antonio and Goodwill specifically for Rummage Sale customers to shop for new or used name-brand items. The items in Julia’s Attic are of higher-quality than those you would find in the rest of the store, plus the majority of items have been donated by JLSA members.
