Donating Items

Donate Items
We would be unable to meet the basic needs of all of our clients without help from community members like you. Your donations make a difference to all of our clients, year round.

Ongoing Needs
The following items are always needed and are accepted by the YWCA directly during business hours:

•  New socks, undergarments, and pajamas
•  New bedding (twin sized preferred), and pillows
•  Diapers and baby wipes(sizes 4, 5  and 6 greatly needed)
•  New car seats and strollers
•  Full-sized toiletries
•  Used cell phones (with or without chargers)
•  Gift cards ($25 increments to Safeway and Fred Meyer)

Donation Drives
Does your group or organization want to do a donation drive? Our donation needs fluctuate throughout the year so please contact us to see what the greatest need is currently.

Client Safety and Security
Please do not take donations to our shelter. Due to security reasons they cannot accept donations. Our administration offices are open Monday through Thursday 8:30am to 5:30pm and Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.

You can drop off the donations listed above at our front reception desk at 405 Broadway anytime during these hours and receive a tax receipt.

Donating Used Items
We only accept new, unused, unopened and unexpired donations. We do not have the space or staff capacity to sort through and store used items. Please call for the most up to date information regarding our donation policies and/or current needs.
