What We Need Now

Current Drive: Back to School

Back-to-school time brings a range of emotions. New classmates, new teachers, new schools - these changes can be tough for any student. Youth experiencing homelessness must also grapple with finding stable housing, a safe place to study, school clothes, and supplies. At YouthCare, we help youth find those basics so they can focus on school.
Your donation of the following supplies gives homeless youth the tools they need to be successful and build a future. 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:

  • New underwear and boxers
  • Backpacks
  • Alarm clocks and watches
  • Day planners
  • Scientific/graphing calculators
  • Loose-leaf ruled and graph paper
  • Art supplies
  • Gift cards (Target, Fred Meyer, Amazon.com, 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.
