Mission Statement

Share Our Spare™ provides Chicago families living in low-income and homeless situations with the essentials they need to thrive. We impact the health of our communities by connecting those with items to share with those in need. We collect new and gently-used baby and children’s items from individuals and corporations and distribute through a network of social service partners.

Description

Share Our Spare(tm) was founded in June 2011 by 10 Chicago women with a desire to help mothers less fortunate than themselves. While the births of our children resulted in an overwhelming accumulation of gear for our little ones, we know that many families struggle to provide their children with even the most basic essentials. Recognizing that we had more "stuff" for our children than necessary - and knowing that so many mothers in our community were going without - we were inspired to create this organization.

We currently serve low-income families with one or more children (ages 0-4) living in metropolitan Chicago. We reach these families through partner organizations, located on the north, south and west sides of the city as well as downtown.
