Help us provide diapers for babies in need.

REUSING OLD STUFF. MAKING NEW FRIENDS.

We organized Freebies for Families in memory of Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, a young mom from Pilsen who was tragically killed while trying to get some free baby clothes via a Facebook connection. 

Guardians in need - and those wishing to unload gently used baby and kid items - can safely drop off, pick up or both at this bi-monthly event. All leftover donations benefit local organizations such as Share Our Spare.
