The YWCA needs to provide one backpack for every child entering K thru 12th grade, in every program here at the YWCA encompassing Seattle, King County and Snohomish. That's a lot of backpacks!! We need help getting almost 3,000. To provide a backpack just pick a grade and a gender, get a brand new backpack and stuff it with grade level school supplies. Most stores will have the list by grades of what should be included. We are always short on cool teen backpacks, or pink little girl ones, both equally important.

These need to be dropped on MONDAY AUG. 27th between 9am and 5pm at 2820 East Cherry, Seattle.

In addition, we are looking for a new first day outfit for many of these kids. So many of these kids are wearing the wrong size shoes, or clothes with holes in them, so let's outfit them with 1 full new outfit so their first step into school is a comfortable one. One outfit equals= 1 top, 1 bottom, 1 sweater, 1 pair of shoes, socks, and underwear. You'll be assigned a specific child to shop for, like our adopt a family program. Again, these need to be dropped MONDAY AUG. 27th 9am til 5pm!

Our homeless shelter kids need to be armed with the tools to learn this fall and we thank you for your help! Please let us know if you can help with either of these asks!
