Help Homeless Youth this Holiday Season!

Every day, homeless youth must focus on food, shelter, and safety. Yet during the holidays, their wishes are no different than what so many of us look forward to: a chance to gather with friends and loved ones, share a meal, and enjoy the season. With your help, homeless youth can take first steps to move from the challenges of homelessness to the hopefulness of stability. It can start with something as simple as a holiday gift – selected just for them. Bring joy to our community’s homeless youth this season. Learn more below!

Host a Drive!

Drives provide much-needed items for homeless youth, while also sending a powerful message that their community is thinking about them during the holiday season. 

Drives can be organized in a variety of ways. Organize friends, family, coworkers, or another community group to collect needed items from the list below; or choose to fulfill specific wishes for a set number of youth (for example, wish lists from 25 youth); you can even host a giving tree (YouthCare can supply gift tags). 

Sign up to host a drive for YouthCare! Once you've signed up, check out the resources on this page to support your drive. We also have a fun YouthCare Holiday Drive Flyer listed on the right to help you spread the word! 

**Unfortunately, we cannot provide donation bins at this time. Many groups make their own by wrapping large boxes with holiday paper!**

Dropping off Holiday wishes is easy! Unwrapped donations can be dropped off at YouthCare’s main office (2500 NE 54th St., Seattle, 98105), Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. 

Special holiday hours will start Monday, December 11, and drop-off hours will be from 8am-7pm. Additionally, we'll be open on Saturday, December 9, 16, and 23 from 10am-2pm.

We ask that all holiday wishes be dropped off by 2pm on Saturday, December 16. Our main office will be closed on December 24 and 25.
