What We Need Now

Seasonal drives are crucial to helping us meet immediate needs. You can make an individual donation or host a community drive to collect items essential to this mission. 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: Help Homeless Youth Stay Warm and Dry Through Cold Weather! 

Each month over 400 young people come to our drop-in center looking for socks, a hot meal, and a chance to get in out of the cold. That’s the first step to earning their trust, and our ultimate goal is to help them move off of the streets and prepare for life. In the meantime, those survival supplies are quite literally saving lives. You can help by making a donation of these critical supplies, especially:

  • New underwear
  • Coats and rain jackets
  • New socks
  • Backpacks
  • Hoodies
  • Gloves and hand warmers
  • Blankets
  • Sleeping bags
  • Long underwear
  • Gift cards (Target, Fred Meyer, Safeway)

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.
