Note for shipping:

Please note that we cannot accept boxes of used clothing sent to our mailing or package addresses (PO Box 9011 - PMB #41, or 237 Rockwood Suite 120 PMB #77)  at this time.

We pick up the packages in Calexico. It is a challenge for us to bring used clothing across the border, because there is a huge used clothing resale industry in Mexico, and some people have used charitable organization's names to bring clothes across to resell. That makes it harder for us if we are bringing them across legitimately! The result is that it can cost us quite a lot in customs.  We prefer that money go directly to the kids!

If you are coming down, you are welcome to bring used clothing within your own items.  We definitely appreciate it! 

Please be sure all packages are sent to the following address:

Marketplace Sonshine Sonrise

237 Rockwood Ave

Suite 120 PMB 77

Calexico, CA 92231

Any packages worth $100 or more MUST have an invoice or receipt inside to show what was paid for the items.
