White Elephant Sale

Friends, as we have monitored the information over the past several weeks about the coronas virus and its impact on the community, we remain on hold for the White Elephant Sale.

2020 WHITE ELEPHANT SALE remains Postponed
Donations are not being received at this time

We remain optimistic that the sale will be held this fall. In the meantime we remain actively monitoring the status of when we will be able to safely restart the preparation process and set a date for the sale.

WHEN WILL WE OPEN? Our guideline will be when the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids opens its facilities, we will once again accept donations and begin preparation for the sale.

A projected FALL SALE will be back at 3450 Plainfield NE - an ideal location for us.

In the meantime, if you would like to make a request for a future donation when we are back in business, go to our


Thanks for your patience.
