Due to the volume of used clothing donations, and our extremely limited storage space, we no longer accept donations of used clothing or household items. 

Please do not leave these items on our property, as they will be discarded if left unattended.

We suggest donating to the Mission Thrift Store at 1300 Simcoe St N (and Taunton) as they allow our clients to shop for what they need at no cost. 

When you donate to YWCA Durham, you make it possible for us to deliver our many programs, including emergency shelter for women and children, and a 24-hour Crisis Line. A general donation allows us to apply funds as needed, where needed. Your gift helps us empower women every day. When you donate to us you are investing in the future of women and children who are victims of abuse and you are taking a stand against violence.  


Most importantly, when you donate to YWCA Durham, you truly become a part of changing lives, saving lives.  


Donate today! We appreciate your support more than you know.  


If you would prefer not to donate online, please contact our office at (905) 576-6356
