Winter Essentials Charity Drive: Share our Spare

Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology is proud to partner with Share Our Spare, a local non-profit organization, to support their Winter Essentials Drive which is a holiday campaign designed to provide warm winter clothing to children in need.

Beginning Monday, December 2nd, CCSD will collect new and gently used sweaters, coats, hats, socks, mittens, and boots for children ranging in age from newborn to 5-years-old at 515 N. State St, Suite 900. Then Share Our Spare will distribute these items to families living in poverty through a committed network of over 40 social service agencies spanning 77 Chicago neighborhoods. This year Share Our Spare is on track to reach 23,000 children, helping mothers and fathers focus on caregiving instead of worrying about securing the basics for their children.

We invite you to help with this important need in Chicago by bringing a donation to CCSD or CSS. The donation bin will be located at 515 N. State St., Suite 900 until Tuesday, December 31st.

If you prefer to send your winter essentials donation directly to Share Our Spare, please  ship or visit the Sharehouse at 935 W. Chestnut Street, LL 13, Chicago, IL 60642. If you have any questions about the drive or would like to host your own Winter Essentials Drive, please contact Share Our Spare directly by emailing

Thank you in advance for partnering with us to meet the needs of children living in poverty in Chicago. Together, we can keep all of Chicago’s children safe and warm this winter.
