Share Our Spare seeks to break the cycle of generational poverty by ensuring every child in Chicago has the essentials they need to thrive in the first five years of life. Share Our Spare was born here in Chicago on the belief that we are a community that wants to share and contribute our extras to impact the youngest members of our society. Share Our Spare is rooted in the belief that we can connect and inspire community engagement to benefit impoverished and marginalized Chicago families.


Due to increased cases of COVID, Share Our Spare made the very difficult decision to cancel plans to celebrate our 10 year anniversary via an in-person gala. In lieu of this event, we are hosting a virtual fundraiser to raise dollars and awareness to accelerate our mission.


This year, SOS moved into a new warehouse that has allowed us to serve our agencies and families more efficiently. It has also allowed us to serve more children; 1,000 more each month have access to the essential items they need to thrive. Please consider supporting this growth. 


In an effort to support the children in our community, we are asking you to donate to our largest fundraiser of the year and help us reach our goal of raising $350,000. Your donation will allow us to continue to impact nearly 10,000 children each month.

This year, in celebration of 10 years, we are honoring 10 people that have been champions of our mission. Check back each day to see who in our community has made our mission a success.
