ORGANIZATION: Home of the Sparrow, Inc

Our High School Volunteer Program offers students the opportunity to volunteer at any of our Sparrow's Nest and Community Tread Thrift Stores. Stores are located in Woodstock, McHenry, Cary, Palatine, Mundelein, Third Lake, and Arlington Heights.

For those completing school mandated hours, once processed, you can sign up for shifts. It's easy and accessible!

Volunteer duties include sorting and organizing donations, pricing and displaying merchandise, general clean-up, and providing customer service.

As you may know, Home of the Sparrow is a transitional shelter program that provides housing and supportive services to homeless women and children in Northern Illinois. We provide Hope, Opportunity and Support to empower women and children, as they journey from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

We are proud that all net proceeds from the Thrift Stores comes back to support our programs and services.
