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 Amazon.com Wish Listitems will be shipped directly to us! If you'd like to plan further ahead, check out our upcoming drives calendar.

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 Amazon.com Wish List—items will be shipped directly to us! 

Currently needed items: 

  • 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.

You can also make a donation online at www.youthcare.org or purchase donations from YouthCare’s Wish List on Amazon.com.
