In Kind Donations

While we always appreciate financial contributions to support the important services of the Women’s Center of Wake County, there are many ways you can support our work and clients through in-kind donations.

The following is a list of items that are constantly needed by the women and children of the Women’s Center.  Please bring your in kind donations  (such as food, personal hygiene items, and household supplies) to the Women’s Center (112 Cox Avenue, Raleigh, NC 27605).

Bus tickets: sole mode of transportation for many of our low-income and no income clients.  Current price for a day pass is $2.00; $34.00 for a monthly bus pass.  You may contribute money for the purchase of tickets or purchase directly and donate.

Clothing: clothing for women.  (Bras, panties, socks – always needed!)  LARGE SIZE WOMEN’S CLOTHING GREATLY NEEDED!
