Bargain Box History
Bargain Box is unique in many ways. As a fundraiser, the monies have supported Junior League projects since 1949. Monies raised currently support our programs such as:
- Adopt a Backpack for Children in which over 13,000 brand new backpacks have been donated at the beginning of the new school year to children;
- Kids in The Kitchen, a program designed to combat childhood obesity; and
- Kelton House Museum and Garden.
Bargain Box is also a community service. Over the years, JLC has learned that many families visit the Bargain Box sale every year and rely on the merchandise to clothe their children for school and provide gifts during the holidays.
