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 Us Meet the Growing Need for Food!

We’re seeing more requests for food than ever before. Regular, nutritious meals are an essential part of a strong foundation for success. Help us address this growing need and ensure that every homeless young person that walks through our doors is ready to thrive by donating nonperishable food items, such as:

  • Grocery store gift cards (Safeway, Fred Meyer, etc.)
  • Dried pasta and rice
  • Canned fish and meat
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Canned beans and soup
  • Cereal, crackers, and granola bars
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Cooking oil and spray

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.
