Home of the Sparrow has been operating resale stores since the early 1990s and currently has five Sparrow's Nest Thrift Store and Donation Centers in McHenry, Cary, Woodstock, Palatine and Algonquin.

"We are very fortunate to have such a high level of support from so many in the communities we serve," said Kevin Campbell, vice president of retail. "Our donors, volunteers, and customers have enabled us to evolve into a well-recognized regional chain of stores offering quality items at bargain prices."

With the anticipated opening of the new location, Home of the Sparrow is in need of volunteers to work a variety of shifts and gently used donations such as clothing, shoes, sports equipment, jewelry and accessories, tools, seasonal items, housewares and glassware, linens, bedding, gifts, toys, lawn and garden items.

Home of the Sparrow also offers free pickup of furniture or large items. To schedule a pick up, call (815) 271-5444, ext. 41.

All of the net income generated from the current five stores is used to support the agency.

Home of the Sparrow operates two shelters and 19 affordable housing units, and it has recently implemented a rapid rehousing program.

With the expansion of housing capabilities, Home of the Sparrow will now be able to serve more than 220 homeless women and children this year.

During the past three years, the number of homeless women and children served by Home of the Sparrow has increased by 120 percent.

If you are interested in volunteering or have questions about donating, call (815) 271-5444.
