Share Our Spare Shared Future Gala
Thursday from 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM CDT
Share Our Spare provides essential resources to those most vulnerable in our community, equipping the youngest members of our community with a Strong Start for a Shared Future. The heartbreaking reality is that 1 in 3 children in Chicago have an unmet diaper need – that’s nearly 65,000 children. Since 2011, SOS has been a citywide leader committed to breaking the cycle of generational poverty that impacts the trajectory of a child’s life. Your support will bring us closer to a world where all of Chicago’s children have their basic needs met, allowing parents to shift their focus from crisis management to nurturing, bonding, and caring for their children. Today, Share Our Spare is partnered with over 150 non-profit agencies serving more than 10,000 unique children each year creating a meaningful impact in our community:
Despite these successes, the need remains staggering with an additional 8,500 children on our waitlist. Proceeds from our annual gala will go directly to our Signature Essential Needs program and expanding our services to the thousands of children currently requesting support.
