The YWCA West Central Michigan is a place of hope, healing, and renewal for over thousands each year. For those fleeing violent situations, they all too often leave with nothing more than the clothes on their back. We appreciate donated supplies to help children, adults, and families through their trauma. Your donation can also help prevent trauma, through supplies for our Prevention and Empowerment Services.

Please note: We are only able to accept new items as donations. If you would like to donate anything from the list below, please call 616.459.4681 to arrange a time to drop off. Thank you!
