With a distribution network of more than 35 agency partners, we are supporting social workers across Lake, Cook, and DuPage counties and providing essential items to more than 10,000 children annually. Share Our Spare (SOS) seeks a highly motivated, versatile, and socially conscious Data and Development VISTA to join our team. This role will work with the Executive Director and the Director of Partnerships and Community Engagement to increase stakeholder engagement through giving, volunteerism, and advocacy.
