Celebrating One Year of Sharing!

It’s hard to believe that we just celebrated ONE YEAR of sharing our spare!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone that has supported our efforts over the past 12 months.  With your help, we have been able to fulfill complete wish lists for more than 30 families and we have helped countless others by sharing essential baby and toddler items given to us byyou, our generous donors.
As we head into year 2, we are thinking BIG and we want to make sharing even easier for you!   Share Our Spare is now accepting donations of new and gently used baby and toddler supplies to stock our storage facility.  The goal is to keep the shelves filled with all of the essentials so that our agency partners can come in and ‘shop’ for their individual clients as needed. This new model will allow us to help many more families and we couldn’t be more excited!
If you are interested in sharing your spare to help a local family in need, please contact us.  We also encourage you to stay updated on our collection events, donation drop-off locations, fundraising opportunities and new partnerships via Facebook.
Ensuring that your donations end up in the hands of someone that truly needs them has NEVER been easier!  Share YOUR spare today and make a tremendous impact on the life of another family.  As always, thank you for sharing! 


Casa Central Donation Drop

What a day!  Thanks to our amazing donors, we filled an ENTIRE room with what seemed like an endless supply of infant and toddler items to share with participants of Casa Central’s Adolescent Parenting Program.

There were MANY brand new items, including a car seat and a stroller and there were MOUNTAINS of gently used clothing, toys, bath products, blankets, towels, books, formula, diapers, wipes and gear.

A great reminder of how truly blessed we are and that just by sharing the spare items we are no longer using, we can help to lessen the burden for local families struggling to provide for their children.  We had such a wonderful morning at Casa Central and we definitely squeezed our own kids a little tighter when we got home.
 To all that was a part of this one, as always, thanks for sharing!
