The YWCA Thrift Store is YWCA NCW’s retail store and home to our job training program, which features an easy to navigate and well organized layout, quality gently used items such as furniture, housewares, electronics, and quality clothing for men, women, and children. All items have been generously donated by members of our community.
By shopping at and/or donating to the YWCA Thrift Store, you directly support the programs and services we provide in the community including our homeless housing programs, job training, and economic empowerment programs.
One-hundred percent of the YWCA Thrift Store’s proceeds support YWCA NCW’s life-changing programs and services for local families in the process of rebuilding their lives.

The YWCA Thrift Store is Open Tuesday-Saturday
By donating your new or gently used items to the YWCA Thrift Store, you directly support the women, children, and families in our community that need your support the most. 100% of the proceeds from the donated items sold in our store go to supporting our homeless housing and economic empowerment programs. Your donations stay local, and are 100% tax-deductible.
How to Donate
Donations for the store can be brought to the YWCA Thrift Store during regular hours of operation, Tuesday-Saturday from 9am-6pm.
If you would like to donate non-perishable food items for our homeless housing shelter pantry, baby items such as diapers and wipes, or bedding/clothing items for the residents in our shelters, such items can be brought to our administrative offices at 212 First St in Wenatchee, Monday-Friday from 11am-1pm daily.
The YWCA Thrift Store can also accept item shelter donations during regular store business hours.
Did you know that YWCA NCW gives away hundreds of dollars a month in free clothing every month to the homeless, job seekers, women and families?
The YWCA Thrift Store is proud to be one of the only thrift retail locations in North Central Washington to provide this type of emergency and/or critical assistance to community members most in need.
Community members who are in need of basic items such as a warm coat, shoes, an outfit for an upcoming job interview, or small essential baby or childrens items can come in and one of our staff will assist them in selecting the needed items, typically with no questions asked. Availability and restrictions apply, and each individuals situation will be treated on a case by case basis with confidentiality, dignity, and respect.
Please call and ask to speak to our Store Manager Susan at 509-423-7599 with any questions regarding this program.
We accept and welcome donations of any textiles, cloth items, shoes, worn out clothing, electronics in working and non-working condition etc.
By donating these items, which often times end up in our landfills, we are able to recycle and obtain a small return. You can help directly support the YWCA’s Homeless Housing, Job Training, and Economic Empowerment Programs by donating everyday items that you would normally toss in the trash. Items can be brought to the store anytime during normal business hours.
