Thank you for your Interest in Our Holiday Donation!

NWYS serves youth ages 13-24 years old. While around five of our clients have toddlers ages 5-8, most of our requested donations will be for teens and young adults. Continue reading to see suggestions, and please feel free to donate items for our clients’ children as well!


We are also requesting donations of wrapping paper, bags, tissue paper, boxes, tape, bows, etc. While the gift donations should be new/ unused, wrapping supplies do not have to be!


If ordering online from links below, gifts and wrapping supplies can be sent to or physically dropped off at 1020 North State Street. Please save and tape copies of receipts to the donated item for our tax documentation.
