About The Country Fair White Elephant
The Country Fair White Elephant Thrift Store 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 600 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.
Over $2.2 Million in revenue is generated each year and $1.75 Million goes back directly to community organizations who are recipients of White Elephant grants and to our local students who are recipients of a scholarship through our Country Fair White Elephant Scholarship Foundation. The White Elephant is proud to be able to contribute money right back to our local communities through our granting process. So whether you are a volunteer, a donor, or a shopper, your contributions to the White Elephant are so appreciated by this organization. From all of us here at the White Elephant, thank you for your continued support.
