Any items not sold will be donated to our textile drive.  Old stained clothing will be turned into industrial rags, and anything that no longer resembles something that would hang in a closet or fold in drawer is turned into insulation.  
We are ALSO looking for donations of hangers, clothing racks and folding tables to use during the sale. Please bring your clothing in large garbarge bags tied off with twist ties or yarn so the garbage bags can be reused for the donation of the textiles to Chicago Textile Recycling after the New To You Sale. 

SCRIP is the easiest way to raise funds for PCCS! Simply buy gift cards through SCRIP for things you normally buy - groceries, gas, clothing, gifts and more - and a percentage of your purchase goes right back to the school. Easy as that! These are the exact same gift cards you can buy at the store, with no expiration dates, no activation fees, and no minimum purchase. You can use your SCRIP cards to help control your budget, to stock up on gifts, or for special events. Whatever your use, they are a great way to give back to PCCS without spending more time or money than you normally would. Click here to see a list of available SCRIP gift cards and empower your everyday spending while benefiting PCCS!

Box Tops for Education

Simply clip the Box Tops “coupon” from the packages of products you normally buy, attach them to a Box Tops collection sheet and send them in. For every Box Top collected, PCCS receives 10 cents. Click here for the Box Tops collections sheet.

Holiday Bazaar

Every year in December, families are asked to send in gently used items to be used as “stock” for our very own boutique which is set up in the gym. Children are then able to shop for family members with all items costing $1. The gifts are then wrapped by our bevy of “elves” and helpers. Not only is this a great way to practice our mission of reusing but it is an event that for many students is one of the highlights of the year. Many families set aside a box in their garage or basement to collect items throughout the year that would be appropriate to donate to the Holiday Bazaar.

We believe that children are our best hope to improve the world.
