Where Used Goods Become Good Deeds.
The WHITE ELEPHANT SHOP was established in 1964 by a handful of volunteers looking for a way to support their community. From those early beginnings, the store has grown to more than 550 dedicated volunteers, working 6 days a week, processing, cleaning and pricing gently used goods for re-sale to the public.
Revenue generated by store sales is contributed each year to more than 130 local schools and charitable service organizations throughout Green Valley, Sahuarita and the Santa Cruz Valley, and the demand continues to grow.
The WHITE ELEPHANT SHOP also sponsors the annual Country Fair held each year in late October. The Fair features a parade of more than 100 entries, including bands, floats, horses, marching units and more. The Green Valley Village Mall and Continental Plaza participate with Fair exhibits and booths numbering over 200.
2014 marks the 50th Anniversary of the White Elephant! Our 50th Anniversary Midnight Madness Green Valley Style will be held on Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 from 3:00pm to 6:00 pm. The Annual Parade will take place on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. See you there!
