In-Kind Donations

Because storage is limited, we ask you to contact Jeanne Osborn to discuss your donation.

  • We are always seeking the following: disposable diapers; dishes and cutlery in like-new condition; new sheets, comforters and towels; school and art supplies.
  • Note:  State Health Department regulations prevent us from accepting used bedding, upholstered furniture or plush toys.  Also, we are unable to accept used crib donations due to federal law.  Please see out ‘Donate’ tab for a list of what we take/do not take.

The Gift of Time

Do you have a special talent you’d like to share? Have some time to read to our preschoolers or provide child care while moms in our transitional housing attend workshops and classes? Want to lend a little elbow grease and spruce up one of our sites? We welcome your assistance! Please contact us to discuss volunteer opportunities at the YWCA.
