Why not consider the donation of time? YWCA is always looking for willing and compassionate volunteers!
'Hidden Treasures' is a program designed to help women and children with basic clothing, personal items and household items, which are donated by the community. Volunteers then organize the donated items into sections in a store-like atmosphere. We're looking for volunteers to help sort and organize the donations.
