Wish List

YWCA Wish List

Thank you so much for taking a look at our wish list! It is so wonderful that community members like yourself are thinking about us. So that we can adhere to state guidelines and safety regulations, we are unable to accept certain items.

  • We cannot accept used car seats or used cribs (although we can take used pack and plays).
  • We cannot accept stuffed animals, used pillows, used mattresses, etc.
  • In most cases, we do not accept used toys. At certain times, we are looking for specific items, so please call us and let us know what you are looking to donate.
  • We do take seasonal clothing. We prefer that the clothing be dropped off on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
  • We also take donations of hygiene products, house goods, etc.

Please follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on immediate needs of the YWCA!
