Hygiene supplies needed year round

Year-Round Needs

Help Homeless Youth Year-Round

While the youth we serve have important seasonal needs, certain items are in demand year-round. In-kind donations of hygiene supplies, bus tickets, and other day-to-day items help YouthCare keep its costs down — allowing us to dedicate that much more of our budget to providing all those other resources that get youth off the streets and preparing for life.

We welcome individual donations (an easy way to donate is to shop via our Amazon Wish List). You might also consider hosting a drive in your community. Help us support homeless youth by donating the following items throughout the year:

  • Bus tickets and ORCA cards
  • Gift cards (Fred Meyer, Target, Safeway, Ross, Payless, QFC, etc.)
  • New underwear (boxers for men) 
  • Deodorant (travel-size)
  • Razors and shaving cream
  • African American hair products
  • Backpacks
  • Sleeping bags
  • Alarm clocks
  • Day planners

How to Donate:

Donations are accepted at YouthCare’s main office during business hours, Monday–Friday, 9:00am–5:00pm. Drop them off in person or mail them to:

YouthCare
2500 NE 54th Street
Seattle, WA 98105

In-kind donation receipts will be issued to you for your tax purposes.
