Join us for YWCA Spokane’s 5th Annual Hope for the Holidays Adopt-A-Family Wishlist Program

In these difficult times, your contributions are so meaningful and will make this season a little brighter for those impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hope for the Holidays looks a little different this year. To reduce potential exposure, our Domestic Violence Safe Shelter and Women’s Opportunity Center are asking for gift card donations. Our families will then be empowered to buy their own gifts. A gift card allows a mother to experience the joy of picking out personalized items for her children and allow families to make their own special holiday meal.

To accommodate the different needs of families utilizing our services, each department has its own wishlist. Take a moment to learn more about each department’s needs.

Contact the program of interest to adopt a family this season. On behalf of our team at YWCA Spokane and those we serve, thank you so much for your support!

For general questions, please email hopefortheholidays@ywcaspokane.org.

Please complete this online donation form so we know which family you will be ceremoniously adopting.

Donation Deadline

Holiday donations can be delivered to YWCA Spokane, 930 N. Monroe St., Spokane, WA 99201. If you would like to mail your gift, please address it to the program of choice (i.e. WOC or DV Safe Shelter).
