Help homeless youth go back to school with backpacks, underwear, and more!

Current Drive: Back to school

Homeless youth are excited for the new school year to begin—just like any other young person! But worries over supplies, food, and other necessities make it hard to concentrate. Your donations can help youth experiencing homelessness to focus on their schoolwork, create new goals, and ultimately, build brighter futures.

Pick up a few needed items next time you are shopping, or order from our Wish Listitems will be shipped directly to us! 

What we need now

  • Backpacks & messenger bags
  • New underwear & boxers
  • Alarm clocks & day planners
  • Scientific/graphing calculators
  • Art supplies
  • Nonperishable foods
  • Gift cards (Safeway, Fred Meyer, Target, Ross, etc.)

Donations can be delivered Monday-Friday 9am-5pm to 2500 NE 54th St., Seattle, WA 98105. 

In-kind donation receipts will be issued to you for your tax purposes.
