In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations to YWCA Evanston/North Shore do a community of good! Here’s how:

  • They provide survivors and their children at our domestic violence shelter with essentials to help rebuild their lives. Many survivors come to us with nothing.
  • They help keep expenses down so we can focus on essential programming.
  • And sales of donated women’s clothing help support our programs! We have a two resale shops for women, YWCA Shop for Good and YWCA Crowded Closet (also accepts consignments). 100% of profits from both shops support our domestic violence and economic empowerment programs for women across northeastern suburban Cook County.

Update: YWCA’s main building (1215 Church Street, Evanston) only accepts in-kind donations that have been approved by our staff. Please e-mail jcolston@ywca-ens.org with the items you would like to donate. Thank you for thinking of us!

  • YWCA cannot accommodate drop-off or pick-up in-kind donation requests.
  • Clothing donations of gently used and/or new women’s clothing and accessories may be dropped off at our resale shop YWCA Shop for Good (1107 Central Avenue, Wilmette, IL 60091), or our women’s consignment boutique, YWCA Crowded Closet (820 Dempster St., Evanston, IL 60202). (Read YWCA Shop for Good donation drop-off policy.)
