Volunteer at New 2 You Quality Resale Store

18230 Torrence Ave. Lansing, IL 60438

(708) 889-6369


Owned and operated by the parents and constituents of Calvin and Lansing Christian Schools, the mission of the resale store is to raise money for the tuition relief of parents with students in Calvin Christian or Lansing Christian schools. They intend to do this in such a way that God’s light is reflected to the patrons and community.


Raising Money:

Over $2.8 million has been raised for tuition relief since 2000!
The money raised goes directly to parents for tuition relief; typically $100-300 per student annually.
New 2 You has been increasing its total profits each year since it opened – business is good and will get better with its new location!

Volunteering at the Store:

Families who accept the tuition credit from New 2 You Resale are needed to volunteer a minimum of 3 hours per month to keep the store running smoothly.  Parents, family, and/or friends are also welcome to volunteer; they can attribute their credit hours to a particular family, or to Calvin Christian School in general! We have jobs for everyone and we can work with your schedule; daytime or evening.
