Throughout the year, donations of goods are gratefully received by YWCA Regina and are of great benefit to our clients and programs. For detailed suggestions for year-round donations, click on the links below:
(Isabel Johnson Shelter, My Aunt's Place, Kikinaw Residence)
(KITS, Parker Place, Evergreen)
On occasion, special items are needed and appreciated by the children in our homes--especially at Halloween (costumes for all ages) and Christmas (see Christmas Gifts)
During the Christmas season, many generous groups and individuals contact us with an interest in the needs of our clients. For more detailed information about how you can brighten the holiday season for the women and children in our care, please go to our Christmas Gifts page.
General Infomation about Donations of Used Clothing and Goods
Items are first offered to our clients, and the surplus is placed in our "Anything Goes" discount store. Proceeds from the store help to support our programs. From time to time, if we receive more donations than our clients or our store can use, we donate the excess to other charities that serve people in need.
We cannot pick up donations, but they can be dropped off on the main floor of our 1940 McIntyre Street location. Used furniture cannot be stored at the YWCA. If you would like to donate furniture for our shelter families, please call 306-525-2141, ask to speak to shelter staff, and they will make current shelter residents aware of your available items. Arrangement for pick-up can then be made directly between you and the recipient.
Thank you for sharing!
