The Sparrow’s Nest Thrift Store and Donation Center’s purpose is to support the mission of Home of the Sparrow. 100% of the net proceeds from the six stores are used for the women and children in Home of the Sparrow’s transitional housing program. The Nest Stores are also a zero cost provider of clothing, furniture and housewares to Home of the Sparrow clients and clients of other agencies in Northern Illinois. With an exception to mattresses and box springs, everything sold in the Nest stores is donated. Donations are accepted at all stores.
