Donation of Used Items
We are not able to receive and manage donations of used clothing and household items at the YWCA on 25th Street. Our space is extremely limited and is urgently needed for housing our clients, not for storing clothing. Instead, donations of used items may be dropped off at the YWCA Opportunity Shop on 1st Ave. N. Our clients are able to access the YWCA Opportunity Shop for quality used clothing.
We encourage you to support the Opportunity Shop with your donated items, or shop there for some new-to-you treasures!
YWCA Opportunity Shop
Unit 4- 511-1st Ave N
Open Monday to Saturday 10:00am to 4:30pm. The best times to drop off items are Monday to Friday 10:00am to 3:00pm.
