We Love West Michigan!
JBF Grand Rapids & Kalamazoo loves our community. We live and work here – we laugh and play here. Fundamental to who we are, is our desire to come along side those in our area who are in need of help in one form or another.
In fact, JBF was started on some of those very principles; giving families an option to save money on outfitting their children; supplement their family’s income by consigning items they no longer need; donating items to charities who support children right here in our community.
Yes, it’s true – all of your unsold, donated items stay right here in West Michigan. As of early 2016, our charity partners are:
In the Image – through their Free Store, Referral Program for housing needs, their SHOES program to keep little feet warm and dry and so much more, In the Image supports families in need.
Alpha Women’s Center – supporting women through compassionate, holistic care.
Kalamazoo Dream Center – providing daily practical essentials such as clothing, non-perishable groceries, household goods, fresh food and education to homeless and impoverished families in greater Kalamazoo.
Additionally, we support the Grand Rapids Public Schools homeless/refugee program, the Early Learning Neighborhood Collaborative and the Kent School Services Network to ensure that we are helping as many at-risk children as we can. As our presence expands in Kalamazoo, we hope to create relationships with schools serving their at-risk population.
Consider donating your unsold items – we promise they stay right here in West Michigan and go to great use!
