Chicago Charity Resale Shops

Brown Elephant Resale Shops benefit the Howard Brown Health Centers in Chicago. The Howard Brown Health Center is the Midwest’s largest lesbian, gay, and bisexual health organization. There are currently two locations within Chicago:

5404 N. Clark (773) 271-9382

3651 N. Halsted (773) 549-5943


The White Elephant Resale Shop benefits Children’s Memorial Hospital in Lincoln Park.

2380 N. Lincoln (773) 883-6184


The Mount Sinai Hospital Resale Shop benefits Mount Sinai Hospital

814 W. Diversey (773) 935-1434
