Donate a Meal Program

Host a Supply Drive

Host a donation drive with your company, church, school or organization!

 

The young people we serve consistently need hygiene supplies, clothing, and food.

 

Supply drives are crucial to helping us meet those immediate needs. Hosting a drive is also one of the best ways to raise awareness in our community about youth homelessness – and it is fun too!

 

Please reach out to christyg@nwys.org to see what type of drive would have the most impact right now.
