Share Your Time


Share Our Spare believes in encouraging people of all ages to share their time. We offer many family friendly activities in our warehouse as well as in the community. We also love welcoming corporate groups who want to volunteer as a team. We have engaging activities for all levels and types of groups.

Volunteers help power our communities and make change. We believe change agents come in all ages. At Share Our Spare we work with volunteers as young as 6. We can accommodate up to 20 people and the time commitment is typically 1.5 hours. Our staff will work with you to create a meaningful and fun project.

Below are a few of the fun volunteer events we offer:

Warehouse Warriors
Join us at our River North Warehouse to help sort donations and package baby supplies. This opportunity is great for groups between 10-20 people and typically lasts 1.5 hours! Contact us for more information.

Kit Assembly
Babies, especially newborns, and kids need a lot of new items throughout the first few critical years. Most of our agency partners work with new moms who are unable to provide these most basic essentials that are not covered by public aid. Your group will be responsible for providing and assembling the following NEW items together to create two different kit options:

Newborn Kits 

  • Pacifiers
  • Diapers (1 pack per kit)
  • Burp Cloths
  • Bottles (3 per kit)
  • Wipes (1 pack per kit)

Personal Care Kit 

  • Kids shampoo
  • Kids soap
  • Washcloth
  • Small brush/comb
  • Kids toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Small bath toy

This unique opportunity can be done both at the Share our Spare warehouse or at an offsite location. A great opportunity for corporations, scout troops, and family projects. As an alternative, we can work with your group to provide all the items for your group to assemble. Contact us for more information.

Corporate Volunteers
Share Our Spare welcomes corporate groups who want to volunteer as a team. We are happy to work with your group to find the most meaningful activity. Contact us for more information.

Sip and Sort
Looking for a fun and unique night out while giving back? Consider hosting a ‘Sip and Sort’ event with Share Our Spare. Bring a group of friends together to sort, organize and put together kits for Chicago area families in need. We ask for each group to commit to bringing a specific baby item. Contact us for more information.

We would love to work with you and your group to create a meaningful experience.
