Items desired include arts, crafts, products, gift cards, services, or experiences like shows or entertainment. All donations are tax deductible and can be mailed, dropped off, or we can arrange pick-up.

YMCA Earth Service Corps (YESC), is a program of the YMCA of Greater Seattle that promotes environmental education, leadership development, cross-cultural awareness and service learning. They work with high school and middle school students, empowering young people to be environmental leaders of the next generation.
On March 29th, they will host the annual Environmental Symposium on the University of Washington campus. This year, 150-200 students from high schools throughout Western Washington will meet to discuss environmental topics, problems, and solutions and learn from environmental professionals. This event allows students to connect with like-minded peers and explore different environmental careers. We ensure they leave this event with hands-on training, ideas, and skills they can bring to their everyday life. The symposium is free - registration is required.
