Women’s Wellness Center Needs This and That

Seattle’s Women’s Wellness Center, which offers health and personal care and clean-up facilities to homeless women, needs donations of some of those crucial personal items most of us take for granted. Most needed are:

  • Women’s underwear in all sizes -- especially the larger sizes.
    Bathrobes in all sizes
    Bus Tickets
    Hair dryers - industrial heavy duty
    Styling Brushes
    Hair products (not shampoo, but conditioners, gels, hair spray)
    Hair ties and scrunchies
    Samples of perfume
    Black hair care products
    Deodorant (spray or samples)

Other items needed:

  • Backpacks (backpacks are vital when you are homeless. It is tough to move around carrying your items in a plastic bag)
    Feminine products
    Diapers in all sizes
    Pain medication (Advil, Tylenol)
    Hand lotion (the big bottles are OK)
    Sewing kits
    Hand care kits
    Disposable razors
    Recovery books (AA, NA)
    Infant and childcare books

You can drop off items at FareStart, 1902 Second Avenue (in the same building as the Center.) Or you can have donations picked up from any location in the greater Seattle area. For more info, call Joanne at (206) 443-1233, ext. 22, or Cori Lynn at (206) 256-0665. Or email to joanne@farestart.org.
