Rummage - Donate With Purpose 
The Winnetka Spring Cleanup, which takes place the week of Earth Day (April 22), may be counterproductive to the growing global sustainability movement. In lieu of kicking it all to the curb, Christ Church Winnetka is encouraging residents to Donate With Purpose to Rummage this year in honor of the world's largest environmental movement.

Rummage Donations can be dropped off at the back entrance of the Schroeder Building, located at 700 Oak Street. To help residents Donate With Purpose, Rummage is extending drop off hours the weekend of April 20. Doors are open Saturday and Sunday from 8AM to 4PM. We also offer complimentary furniture pickups. For more information regarding items we do and do not accept for donation, please visit
