Thank you for thinking of YWCA Clark County and those we serve this holiday. We offer direct service, support groups, community outreach and public policy centered around five foundational programs. More than 12,000 families, children, youth and adults access these programs for free every year. With your donations of time, gifts, and funds, we can continue to bring HOPE and JOY to community members when they need it most. Below, we offer three great ways to support your community this holiday season. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.
Many seeking the services of YWCA are, for one reason or another, unable to experience the joy of giving with loved ones. But, on one special day in December, YWCA is transformed into a fun holiday shop—complete with elves and cookies. Through our Holiday Shop, YWCA participants can shop for free; providing a means to give new gifts and holiday joy to their families.
This joyous day couldn’t happen without community members, organizations, and businesses who donate gifts to the holiday shop year after year. When you are out doing your holiday shopping, think of those served by YWCA. Purchase a new gift for a family escaping violence, or a youth in the foster care system. To help spread joy this holiday, please deliver your in-kind donations to YWCA, 3609 Main Street by Wednesday, December 13th. View the wishlist. Purchase a gift online.
Participants are also supported by the empowering services and resources provided at YWCA Clark County. You can help fund these services by making a monetary donation by December 31st. Make a secure online donation today or mail it in to PO Box 2206, Vancouver, WA, 98668.
Every program and department of YWCA utilizes the support of volunteers. Opportunities range from advocacy to office work and provide flexible time commitments. Volunteers receive training and support throughout their time with YWCA, so that they may have a rewarding and beneficial experience.
