Help our girls and young women stay cozy this winter season with the donation of hats, mittens, gloves and scarves. We will also be accepting new toys for children 0-4 years old, winter themed (not holiday) wrapping paper and tape so our Young Moms may give their child/children a gift. 
Donations can be dropped off at the YWRC during regular business hours. For more information, please contact Kahara via email
