One of the greatest things about JBF Reading is that we get to see, meet and serve so many here in our community.
Being able to work with and get to know so many charitable organizations in Berks County has been such a blessing. We have built strong friendships and they have received so many wondeful items from our consignors - that's what Just Between Friends is all about!
Need a fundraiser for your organization? We have a couple of options for you to consider:
Collect Donated Items & Consign for Your Group to Raise Funds!
Just Between Friends is your answer to the traditional fundraisers! JBF has a win-win for you and your group or organization. All you need to do is:
1. Sign up and get a consignor number for your group.
2. Select a JBF coordinator for your group.
3. The coordinator can collect and tag sale items for your group like a single consignor would normally, and bring them items to the sale during the drop-off period for the event.
At the end of the sale, your group or organization will receive a check for 60% of all items sold, less the $10 consignor fee. If someone from your group volunteers at the sale for at least 4 hours, your group can earn 10% more! This is an easy way to raise funds for your group and to help everyone clean out their closets in the process. Questions? Contact us so we can put cash into your organization!
Group Service Fundraising Opportunity
We are accepting nominations for an organization to help us at the JBF Sale in return for a $250 donation to the organization or a cause that the organization supports! We'd love to have an ongoing relationship with this organization, which provides a fundraising potential of $500 per year if your group participates in both of our events!
For the donation, we ask the organization to commit 10 or more individuals for 4 hours each (age 14 or older) to help at the JBF Sale on Sunday, September 29th for the breakdown and unsold item sorting process. The volunteers would need to be able to do a fair amount of moving clothing and other items around and sort them according to our instructions - requiring good attention to detail.
This group will supplement a group of 50+ volunteers who we recruit through our volunteer schedule as it is a big undertaking to get everything sorted! We will provide lunch and to the group who participates.
What the Children's Home of Reading has to say about JBF!
"Just Between Friends has been a tremendous resource for the families served through The Children's Home of Reading. Twice a year for the past 4 years, we have received an assortment of clothing, toys and household items that are desperately needed by the children in our programs. Our families and foster families are so grateful for the generosity of JBF and their consignors have shown. Thank you so much."
