We always say, “You never know what you’ll find at Tossed & Found.”
Over the years there have been some fabulous finds – from a full set of silver to top designer duds with the tags still on.
Sustainer Fernanda Fisher, a Tossed & Found veteran, knows this saying well. Recently, she joined a group of sustainers who volunteered during a drop-off shift. As Fernanda organized the Bric-a-Brac section, she diligently opened a box picturing a beautiful frame to confirm everything was still there. She found a brand new frame along with a crisp $50 bill tucked inside.
Fernanda donated the $50 to the Community Cash Card program, which funds gift cards so sale customers in need can shop with dignity. Fernanda’s find can help someone like the mother with a new job who’s moving out of a shelter and needs to outfit her new apartment and find some good professional apparel.
Thank you to Fernanda for thinking of the Community Cash Card program, and many thanks as well to all the sustainers who came to help us!
It’s the support of members across JLW – actives, new members and sustainers – that drives our sale. It’s also one of the reasons Tossed & Found was recognized by the Association of Junior Leagues International as the 2014 top fundraiser across all leagues worldwide.
