Ypsilanti Foundation Resale Shop
The Ypsilanti Resale Shop opened in November of 2010. The Shop’s location is 1076 Ecorse Ypsilanti, Michigan, 48198. The YPS Foundation, a non-profit sector of Ypsilanti Public School District, opened the shop to raise funds and give to the community. The site serves as a bus garage and maintenance shop, as well as the present home for the YPS Foundation’s store.
This Resale Shop's profits all go toward funding for student scholarships as well as mini-grants for teachers. The average scholarship is around $500 as well. Annually the foundation supplies around 35 scholarships and mini-grants. The shop obtains items through tax-deductible donations (except mattresses) as well as surplus from the school district. The shop also serves as a source of clothing and housewares free of charge for families in need from this area.
