Donate Canned Food Items & Make an Impact

Make an impact this week by donating to YWCA Spokane!

Our Domestic Violence Safe Shelter is in need of canned food items. Providing non-perishable food items creates a huge impact on those staying in our Shelter, and ensures that we can always feed those in need. Please consider donating as part of our SundayImpact campaign this week!

Help us with summer cookouts; Donate canned food items!

We are currently asking for canned food items and non-perishables for our Safe Shelter. Please donate canned food to ensure those staying in our Shelter always have a meal. We invite the community to drop-off their tax-deductible donations of seed packets to YWCA Spokane’s office at 930 N. Monroe St, Spokane, WA 99201. Thank you for your support!

Purchasing your donations at Fred Meyers, Amazon, or Yoke’s Fresh Market? Be sure to sign up for their community giving programs, and these vendors will give a percentage of your purchase back to our agency! Just select YWCA Spokane as your non-profit of choice and double your impact.

More Ways to Give

Looking to donate other used items?

Check out these awesome places to recycle worn denim, used furniture, and many other items that are not the best fit for YWCA Spokane’s programs and services.

  • Blue Jeans Go Green: This program collects denim across the country and upcycles it into UltraTouchTMDenim Insulation, providing a portion to communities in need each year.
  • The Salvation Army: Schedule a free pick-up to your door too! The Salvation Army asks that communities donate before throwing away goods.
  • Terracycle Fabrics and Clothing Zero Waste Box: Purchase a box to fill with clothing and fabric to ship to Terracycle to be repurposed.
  • The Bra Recyclers: An organization that will find a way to recycle, reuse or repurpose bras. You can find a drop-off station or mail old bras directly to them.
  • Council for Textile Recycling: Find clothing donation drop-offs and textile recycling resources all across the US. Keep in mind the donation suggestions might not recycle “unwearable” textiles. I recommend calling the individual recommended locations before making a drop-off.
  • GemText: Free textile recycling based right here in the Northwest! Support a regional business and recycle your goods.
  • Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles: An online platform that will help you find the nearest textile recycling outlets near you.
  • H&M, Don’t Let Fashion Go To Waste – You can drop off your textiles from any brand, in any condition, at any H&M store globally and they’ll recycle it for you.
  • Nike, Reuse-A-Shoe: Nike collects old athletic shoes from any brand that they grind up and use to create courts, fields, tracks, and playgrounds.

Thank you to our donors!

Thank you to our amazing community! You all truly make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Letters From Survivors

I hate the question, “Why doesn’t she just leave?” I have learned that we can’t affix a level of hardship to someone else’s journey. Every journey through and out of domestic violence is extremely hard. Some people do not survive. Some are left with lasting scars, physically and emotionally. Families…
