Pass It On Thrift Center

The Pass It On Thrift Center is located in Crestwood, IL near Chicago Christian High School. A group of dedicated parents and grandparents opened the center in October 1999 with the sole purpose of supporting Christian education at Southwest Chicago Christian Schools. The center has gone through several expansions and renovations and is still going strong in 2019. We are extremely blessed and proud to celebrate the center’s 20th anniversary!

Pass It On is run entirely by volunteers. Proceeds are gifted to SCCS with the express intent of keeping tuition accessible for our families. We are not aware of any other thrift store that provides this level of support, year after year, to a private school. This support would not be possible without dedicated volunteers.
For the 2019/20 school year, Pass It On has pledged a gift of $900,000!
