For many people, the Christmas season consists of two major themes: 1. buying gifts, and 2. making an intentional effort to help and be kind to others, particularly those less fortunate.
What if you could combine both forms of giving at the same time? Or, dare it be said: Kill two partridges with one ornament? Well, good news Chicagoans: it's possible and it's easy. Just do some of your shopping at one of the area’s more than 130 non-profit resale shops and voila! -- you've done it.
Located in virtually every suburban nook and city cranny in the Chicago area, these non profit shops help a wide array of people and causes with: Every. Dollar. You. Spend. There are more than 50 non-profit agencies that rely on resale shops to fund their activities: from St. Vincent DePaul, which operates one city and seven suburban stores, to LaGrange's Community Nurse Health Center, which operates two on the same street in downtown LaGrange.
