We are not rich by any means, but we are very blessed with what we do have.   When we looked at the wish list for the shelter, and saw the very basic needs that were there, we knew this was something that we could help with.  Our goal has been to help the people at SafePlace take care of themselves and their children, so they can focus on recovery and healing.” ~ Katie, Andy and Eden

Many of the people we serve leave abusive situations with few belongings.  Your donations help them build a new life.

What We Can Accept: Gift cards to local stores and restaurants, gas cards, personal hygiene items, rain gear, diapers, and much more. Your gifts help keep our emergency shelter and Community Services Center stocked for survivors. Even your old cell phone can be a lifeline for a survivor needing to call 911. Check out our Wish List for a more in-depth list of items we use in our programs. Your in-kind gifts go directly to our clients and programs.

What We Can’t Accept: Comforters, aerosol products, cologne/perfume, strollers, cribs, car seats, mattresses, large electronics, baby blankets, and second-hand clothing (unless otherwise specifically requested.)

Wish List

Our storage capacity is very limited, and we use it to store consumable items. Your generosity means so much, and we encourage you to donate items that we can’t store to other worthy agencies in our community. Please see page 2 of our Wish List for more information about other organizations accepting donations.

We occasionally accept donations of furniture for our SafeHome program. Please see our SafeHome page for more information on how to donate gently used furniture to survivors moving into new homes.

How to Donate: We accept in-kind donation drop-offs Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at our Business Office. Please contact us at safeplace@safeplaceolympia.org or by phone at 360-786-8754 with any questions.
