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!

Right now, in King County, we are asking for donations of goods for Welcome Home/Spring Cleaning. If you’d like to get involved, please contact Lori Bugaj at for more information. If you’re interested in supporting our participants in Snohomish County, please contact Karla Danson at

Thank you for supporting women and families in our community!



Often our families arrive with very few items to help make their new apartment a home. Help our families by filling a laundry basket or storage bin with items to comfort or clean for our 2024 Cleaning Supply drive!

Our collection drive runs through the end of May. Donations can be dropped off May 29 - 31 at our Phillis Wheatley Office, located at 2820 E Cherry St. Seattle, WA 98122 between the hours of 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM.

Items needed for our Welcome Home/Spring Cleaning drive can be found on our Amazon wish list. For online orders, please ship to:
