Helping families and communities across the country save money and make money while providing for their families is what drives Just Between Friends. Even from its small beginnings as a living room sale back in 1997, local families brought items to sell, while other families were able to purchase items they needed. In the years since we began, the economy has brought challenges which have left some struggling to make ends meet. We are so blessed to hear story after story about how JBF has helped make that happen—giving families a way to provide quality items at bargain prices for their kids. And for those that sell their items, a sales event can make the difference in being able to cover their bills.
Another HUGE part of what we love about what we do is the local charities with whom we partner to reach even MORE people within our communities. Each sales event donates items and goods to these local organizations which help local women, children and families. We serve groups that provide clothing closets, crisis centers, transitional emergency care, food banks and so many other wonderful services (here’s a partial list for you).
Since 1997 our Mission Statement has been the same and we still pursue this mission today:
"To glorify God by bringing communities and families together in a welcoming, friendly venue that allows them to care for children and be good stewards of what they have been given."
We do not take for granted the good that comes from each sales event or the trust our families place in our commitment to hold safe, family-supportive events, season after season. We are dedicated to our communities because we are a part of these communities. We are moms, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents who are invested in making our small parts of the world a better place. We are bargain lovers, of course, but beyond that, we believe in being good stewards of our resources—taking care of each other and reaching out a hand to those who need it (as we all do at one time or another).
If this is something you believe in, we invite you to join us. Find a local sales event and get involved! Or contact us about starting a Just Between Friends franchise in YOUR area! Join us on our mission to help families across the country shop, sell and save. Now that’s smart!™
