The answer is yes and no…thanks for asking!
You can make your garage sale a YWCA Social Good event.
Organize a small sale in your own garage, or a big community event, and create a “party with a purpose.”
Tell your friends that you are raising funds for the YWCA this way. Get more info about other kinds of YWCA Social Good events here.
We do not accept 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, we encourage you to support the Opportunity Shop on 1st Ave N.
This is a wonderful volunteer-run thrift shop that has supported the YWCA for decades. Not only will you find some second-hand treasures there, but you can also donate quality used clothing and household items. And the clients we serve at the Y are able to access the Opportunity Shop when they need something. Find the Opportunity Shop.
