 Schedule a Donation Drop-off

YWCA Utah is grateful for your support in purchasing new items. To preserve the health of our community, staff, residents, and volunteers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we no longer accept gently used donations of any kind. If you have any questions about our current in-kind donation policy please contact our Assistant Director of Operations Rocío Torres Mora 801-537-8625 

Thank your support of YWCA Utah. We are a local, autonomous 501(c)(3) organization that relies on generosity from community members like you to advance the well-being of Utah women and their families. Charitable contributions to the YWCA are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Tax ID # 87-0212467




Hygiene Kits

We ask that all personal care items be donated individually rather than pre-built into hygiene kits. While we do give kits to incoming participants, the items that go in the kits vary based on the needs of those entering the program. 


Used clothes, books, and furniture can be donated to The Otherside Academy. Please email or call 801.953.0409 for donation details. The Other Side Academy may be able to take some mattress donations depending on the condition. Otherwise, Spring Back Utah is a great mattress recycling program available for a small fee. Spring Back can be contacted via email or by calling 801.906.8146.

Donations of travel and sample-size toiletries are sustaining for many organizations. The majority of our participants are individuals with families staying with us for multiple days. The best fit for us is full or family-sized hygiene items. Please donate your travel-sized toiletries to the Geraldine E. King Women’s Resource Center. Donations can be dropped off at 888 South 400 West, SLC, UT 84115, The VOA Youth Resource Center.

Used Car Seats are not accepted at local non-profits or thrift stores. Check with large-scale retailers as they occasionally have a trade-in, buyback, or recycling programs for used car seats. Utah does not currently have a car seat recycling program.
