YWCA York is grateful for in-kind donations of items our families can use while they’re healing from the trauma of domestic abuse. Unfortunately, due to limited available storage, we cannot accept all donations. Please check our donation wish list* to see our current needs. We appreciate your support and generosity.

*Please note that YWCA York only accepts donations of new items. We encourage you to take gently used clothing and household goods to St. Mary’s Thrift Shop at 26 E. College Avenue (717-812-9999), which provides our clients with vouchers to pick out free items.
