What We Need Now

YouthCare Image

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 List - items will be shipped directly to us! If you'd like to plan farther ahead, check out our upcoming drives calendar.

Current Drive: Independence

Remember what you needed in your first place? Homeless youth need those items too! Young adults moving into our housing programs or their first apartments have worked hard to gain stability, build confidence, and plan for their futures. Your donations can help make their new place feel like home and provide much-needed comfort.
Join us in celebrating their independence by donating the household items listed below. 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! 


We currently need:

  • Small kitchen appliances
  • Dishes, cups, and utensils
  • New kitchen and bath towels
  • Sheet sets and new pillows
  • Alarm clocks
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Toilet paper and paper towels
  • Vacuums, brooms, and mops
  • Laundry detergent and baskets
  • Gift cards (Safeway, Target, Fred Meyer, 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.
