About this organization






Share Our Spare seeks to disrupt cycles of generational poverty by collecting new and gently used essentials for children ages 0-5 including diapers, wipes, baby care items, baby gear, clothing, books and toys. We then redistribute these items across Chicago and the surrounding counties through a network of over 30 agency partnerships, reaching over 6,000 children each year. We help turn your extras into the EXTRAordinary!


Share Extra Stuff, Time and Money - The Organization utilizes donated goods, volunteer time and contributions/grants, collectively referred to as ?extras?, to provide essential infant and toddler items to families that are most in need. The Organization distributes essential infant and toddler items through a network of social service agencies through the Chicagoland. Each month the Organization serves nearly 1,000 children through Cook, Lake and DuPage counties.
