Share Your Extra Stuff

Your extras are someone else’s essentials. Share your stuff and change a child’s life.

At Share Our Spare, we know how “extra” items can make an extraordinary difference. When you donate new or gently used items for children up to five years of age, you’re providing children with the basics needed at a pivotal time in their childhood.

We closely inspect each donation to ensure that it is free of stains and holes and that all baby gear is clean and ready to use. With your help, we ensure that every item distributed meets our quality standards.

We gratefully accept donations at our River West warehouse. Check our drop-off dates. We will help you unload your donations and make sure that they get to the families in Chicago who need them the most.
