    In-Kind Donations

Donations of goods and services are essential to AWAIC. When survivors of domestic violence come to AWAIC, they often arrive with little, and sometimes none, of their own belongings. A great way to give back and help survivors move forward is to donate clothing and hygiene items. These small comforts will go a long way to making the women, men, and children we serve feel comfortable and begin to heal.

If you are interested in organizing a donation drive or have questions about donations, please contact Alyssa.

Drop-off Guidelines:

  • All donations must be new or in good, usable condition.
  • Donations must be delivered in trash bags that are no larger than 13 gallons (kitchen size). Donors may drop off two (2) bags of donations at a time. We cannot accept loose donations that are not inside a bag.
  • Donations are accepted at AWAIC (100 W 13th Ave), Monday through Friday, 8am-4pm.
  • Upon arrival, please ring intercom buzzer and state that you have a donation. Please indicate the types of items you have. We cannot accept items that are not on the list below.
  • Donors are required to wear face masks or coverings when entering AWAIC to drop off the donation.

Current Needs:

  • Pants: Jeans, leggings, yoga pants, sweatpants
  • Shorts: Casual (sleep shorts, terry cloth) and denim/khaki
  • Tops: T-shirts, tank tops
  • Bras: All types of bras in larger sizes, sports bras (all sizes)
  • Footwear: Sneakers, sandals, flip flops
  • NEW hygiene items (lotion, hair dye, shampoo, conditioner, etc.)
Important Note: AWAIC is under construction that will result in more intake rooms, shelter beds, and improved storage space for donations. During construction, AWAIC's ability to store donations is very limited. We ask that you donate only items that are on the list above. The list will be updated frequently depending on current needs and shortages.

Amazon Wishlist

Another way to donate much-needed clothing and hygiene items is by making a purchase from our Amazon Wishlist. These items will be shipped directly to AWAIC from Amazon. Check out the items marked "High Priority" for items that are currently in high demand at the shelter.
