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: Spring Basics

Each month over 400 young people come to our drop-in center looking for socks, a hot meal, and some basic supplies. 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 basic supplies make it easier for youth to handle the unpredictable spring weather.. You can help by making a donation of these critical supplies.

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
  • New boxers
  • Deodorant
  • Bug Spray
  • Razors
  • Jackets and hoodies
  • Sunscreen
  • Athletic socks
  • Chapstick
  • Backpacks
  • Eye drops
  • Gift cards (Target, Fred Meyer, Visa, Torrid, Lane Bryant, etc.)

Donations can be delivered Monday-Friday 9am-5pm to 2500 NE 54th St., Seattle, WA 98105.
