Thank you for Donating With Purpose to Rummage!  Our grass is greener thanks to your generosity.  Together, we are keeping items in use and out of landfills.  Our Departments are nearly fully stocked in preparation for the 94th Annual Fall Rummage Sale.

We are still accepting donations for all Departments EXCEPT FURNITURE.  Complimentary pickups are on hold until November 20.  To reserve a spot, please email a photo of your items to

General Donation Doors are open through September 9 … As KC & The Sunshine Band says, “Keep It Coming Love!”

We cannot accept donations between September 10 through October 28!  Doors Reopen on October 29

While sustainability is top-of-mind, Rummage is really about giving back to the community — 100% of net Rummage proceeds are used to ensure that basic needs like food, shelter and clothing are available to men, women and children in need. Since 2000, we have distributed $2,000,000 groups that are working to improve the quality of life for all Chicagoans.

We invite you to Shop With Purpose on October 4 between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm.  Can I Get An Amen!

We DO NOT accept furniture donations at the Schroeder Building. We offer complimentary furniture pickups each month for New Trier Township residents. Furniture must be in good condition and all items must be photo-approved prior to pickup. Simply send a picture of your furniture to our Rummage Coordinator, Annie Adams. Our furniture scouts will review and if approved, we will add you to the schedule.

Our next Monthly Furniture Pickup – August 21, 2018

Items We Do Not Take

Please note that while we sell ALMOST everything at our annual Rummage Sales, there are some items we can not accept including mattresses, office furniture, tube TVs, damaged, broken or stained items.  For a complete list of DO NOT ACCEPT items, please click here: RUMMAGE Items We Do Not Take.

Since we pay for removal of these items, please be mindful of our DO NOT ACCEPT LIST.  By doing so, you help us keep our expenses in check, which means more proceeds are passed on to those in need.  THANK YOU!
