Community Impact

Thrift House

Thrift House celebrated our 80 year anniversary in 2020, a milestone for any merchant. Since opening our doors in 1940, the Thrift House has been the Junior League of Evanston-North Shore’s oldest, ongoing project and continues to be a major source of revenue, raising approximately $25,000 per year to support JLE-NS’s operations and community projects.


The Junior League of Evanston-North Shore’s Community Grant Assistance Fund is expressly for the purposes of fund disbursement to non-profit, tax-exempt agencies and groups in our community.
