This is our 8th year collecting items for the YWKW Emergency Shelter! Donations will be accepted until December 11. Thanks for your generosity!!
- Where is my donation going? Traditionally our PJ’s are gifted to residents of the YWKW emergency shelter, which serves women, transgendered youth, and families who are in need of a roof over their heads.
