Shop & Support Us

Did you know that you can shop ‘til you drop and your purchases will benefit JCFS Chicago?

There are two easy ways to indulge your need for retail therapy and also make a difference in the lives of thousands of children, adults and families. 

First, purchase a Key Card through the North Shore Auxiliary and receive discounts at participating stores throughout the Chicago area. Key Card Shopping Sprees are held twice a year. Details below.

Second, sign up for AmazonSmile so that every time you make a purchase through Amazon, The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to JCFS.

North Shore Auxiliary Key Card Shopping Spree

Spring and Summer    

The North Shore Auxiliary (NSA) of JCFS Chicago invites you to purchase a key card, which is a special shopping pass that entitles you to 20% off of full-priced, in-stock items or services at participating businesses throughout the week of August 15-22. All proceeds support children and families in the Chicago area. Purchase a key card for $75 online here

Due to COVID-19, there are a few changes this year.

  • Key cards cannot be purchased by mail.
  • Purchase key cards online and show your receipt at participating stores to receive the discount. Physical cards will not be mailed to you.

Thank you for supporting NSA of JCFS Chicago!
