About


The Rogers Park Free Store is a grassroots project working to provide critical relief and engage in mutual
aid practices within our community. We are an autonomous mutual aid network, not a
state-based charity effort. We are here to share as equals in the rich experience of mutual aid.
We are here to honor each other with consistent service, care, and collaboration. We are
ultimately our leadership, and our primary purpose is to build support systems of our own
determination for all to use at will.

The Free Store is currently based out of the Living Water Community Church in Rogers Park, and helps facilitate mutual aid and direct support with neighbors. We provide goods such as laundry detergent, diapers and other baby goods, COVID supplies, sanitary products, and more. All goods are provided with no charge and no need for identification.  All people giving and receiving donations are considered members of this community and project.
