In-Kind Giving

Help impact families in your community by donating critical items needed by YWCA program participants and residents.

At YWCA, we are on a mission eliminate racism and empower women. We work with women and families furthest from opportunity and work to eliminate disparities in housing, economic advancement, health, and safety. BIPOC communities have continued to be the hardest hit in the face of continued economic challenges resulting from the pandemic and continued inflation. To support those most vulnerable in our community, we need your help!

Thank you for supporting women and families in our community!

Help the kids in our shelters celebrate this season with a “Spring Goodie Baskets & Gift Bags”!

We’re looking to gather 750 bags this year. Buy a pre-filled basket or create your own bag/basket with fun things like candy, small toys or stuffed animals, hygiene items, hair supplies, socks, activity books, learning games, fidget toys, and art/drawing/crafting supplies and wrap it up with a ribbon!

Bags and baskets should be dropped off at our Phillis Wheatley branch no later than Friday March 22. The branch is located at: 2820 E Cherry St, Seattle, 98122 and is open Monday through Friday 9AM-5PM. Any questions can be sent to Lori Bugaj at

Other current shelter needs include:

Emergency Shelters

  • Size 5, 6, and 7 diapers and baby wipes (non-scented, hypoallergenic)
  • Dish sets, silverware sets, pots and pans, and bakeware (cooking sheets and utensils)

Angeline’s Women’s Shelter

  • Mugs, bowls, spoons and forks – mismatched is okay, just no chips or cracks
