Donation Wish List

A- A A+

The safety and well-being of all those served by and who work or volunteer with YWCA is our top priority.  In light of our global health crisis, we are currently unable to accept in-kind donation drop-offs (Dress For Success clothing, Re-New furniture or household items, or program supplies).

We are working on an alternative plan for those of you interested in donating needed supplies.  Updates will be communicated via social media, e-blast, and our website.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support. Stay safe and healthy.

If you have the means and are interested in making a monetary donation – which is always helpful –  click here.


We are unable to accept unscheduled drop-offs of donated items. If you would like to donate from the list below, please contact Allison Adams via email or call (615) 983-5144 to schedule delivery of your donation.

Re-New Wish List

Re-New at YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee is a volunteer-led program dedicated to furnishing the homes of the women and children who are starting their lives anew after finding safety at the Weaver Domestic Violence Center.  If you’re interested in donating new or gently-used home furnishings in excellent condition, please provide a photo of the item(s) and approximate dimensions to Cheryl Hays via email .  

Re-New is currently in need of these new or gently-used furnishings in excellent condition:

  • Twin & full-size bedding
  • Artwork
  • Small scale occasional tables & night stands
  • Small scale coffee tables
  • Small scale sofas & chairs
  • Lamps
  • Bathroom linens & accessories

Dress for Success Wish List

Dress for Success accepts donations of new & gently-used, women’s career wear  – suits and separates – by appointment only.   We also accept new make-up brushes, and wardrobe accessories – anything that helps complete an outfit:  shoes, purses, costume jewelry, scarves, etc.

Clothing should be in current styles – something a modern woman would wear to work.  Gently-used clothing should be unaltered, freshly cleaned and in excellent shape.  All clothing must be brought in on hangers – we’re unable to accept bags or boxes of clothing.  We appreciate clothing and shoes in all sizes but have a great need for clothing in sizes 16 & up, and shoes in sizes 9 & up.

DONATIONS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY:  We normally accept clothing donations drop-offs, by appointment, on the first & third Tuesday afternoons of the month. This time of year, we need SPRING & SUMMER women’s career wear (no fall or winter clothing) and wardrobe accessories.  However, due to our global health crisis, we are not making donation appointments at this time.  Check back with us – we will update this web page when we’re able to resume donation collection.  Thank you for understanding.

If you would like to volunteer with our program please contact Allison Adams via email or call 615-983-5144.
