Current Needs

Seasonal drives are crucial to helping us meet immediate needs. You can make an individual donation or host a community drive to collect essential items for the young people in our programs. One great way to give is via our Wish Listitems will be shipped directly to us! If you'd like to plan further ahead, check out our upcoming drives calendar.

The weather in Seattle can be unpredictable. Young people receiving services at YouthCare often have to hurry through rain to get to work or school. Help them stay warm and dry by donating the following items.
