All-Volunteer Organization

The Pasadena Auxiliary has worked in support of Boys Republic for more than a century. After many years of annually conducting “The World’s Largest Rummage Sale,” the Auxiliary opened the Thrift Shop in 1986. Since then, the Thrift Shop has generated more than $1.5 million in proceeds to assist in the operation of both Boys Republic and Girls Republic.

Where the funds go

When you shop at Boys Republic’s Thrift Shop, you help to generate a wide range of funding that supports Boys Republic and Girls Republic. Here’s where the funds go:

  • Vocational and educational scholarships
  • Programs in guidance and education
  • Start-up funds for new programs
  • Building renovation and replacement
