We want to start by saying a big, resounding THANK YOU to everyone who made our first Drive Through Donation Drop-Off event on May 2 such a success! In the span of only 2 hours 55 cars came through the circle drive of our main building, dropping off hundreds of much needed items to support our programs and assist our clients.
If you missed the first drop off or just have more items to donate, you’re in luck! We will be holding another Drive Through Donation Drop-Off event on Saturday, June 27 from 11 am – 1 pm. Fill your car or truck, arrive at YWCA between 11 am and 1 pm, and enter the circle drive from the entry nearest the corner of Cincinnati St. and 6th Street. We will have a one-way flow of traffic through the circle drive as volunteers are prepared to safely assist in unloading donations.
Here are the types of items accepted:
Persimmon Empowerment Boutique Needs
While YWCA will accept clothing and accessories for any season at any time of year, donations of spring and summer clothing and accessories are the most needed at this time. We have a particular need for items in bold.
Dockers or Dickies-style work pants
