What We Need Now

Back to School

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: Help Homeless Youth Prepare for School!

Homeless young people in our programs work hard every day to overcome barriers to success in school. Some are studying for their GED or high school diploma in YouthCare's on-site education programs. Others are moving on to post-secondary training or college with our continued support. All of them deserve to focus on their studies without worrying about where they'll find the supplies they need to be successful.

Help homeless youth prepare for school by donating:

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